grace 101

Ahhhhhhh, towing the line, having a foot in both camps, tossing a bone to legalists for appeasement, riding the fence. Throw in a side helping of law with that gospel order. All of this is evidence of the fear of man.

“Just you wait until your father gets home!” That’s a phrase that will send many kids into hiding. Dads are big and scary, and they lay down the law. But what if that’s an ill-conceived role that has many adults hiding from God? Join Dr. Scott Keith on SBE for a discussion of his book, ‘Being Dad: Father as a Picture of God’s Grace.’

grace 101 steve's sermons

God’s not mad at his children. He loves the worst of us just as much as he loves Jesus, and there’s nothing we can do to make him love us any more or any less. We don’t have to be good to stay in the family, because Jesus was good for us. That’s incredibly good news! So much so that many fear its power and hide the gospel in religion. Check out this short video from Steve, then watch the entire message, The Weird Ways of God.

sanctification

I’m not against transparency and sharing our failures with others; we need that. Confession is a beautiful part of the Christian life; the gospel does free us to admit we “don’t got this.” It’s just that our tendency is to confess things to people because we want them to fix us with law, rather than sharing our struggles to hear the one thing that makes a hill of beans to sinners.

grace 101

Grace literally means “favor.” When it refers to God, it means the unmerited favor of God toward us. In fact, grace is an attribute of God. God doesn’t just act in a gracious way. God is defined by grace. God is grace.
