Had It with Payback Pain?

grace 101

In our “Born Free” seminar at Key Life, we teach a principle about how change takes place. The principle is this: Real change doesn’t take place until the pain gets greater than the payback. In other words, almost everything we do, believe, and think has a payback attached to it.

grace 101

Life simply won’t work without the safety net of God’s grace. If you’re like me, what defines you and your life includes your issues, your secrets, your need to achieve, your desire to please people and your ambition. It is therefore important to place grace at the very foundation of such a life to understand God’s unconditional acceptance and love. If you don’t and then fail big time (and we all will), your life will end up meaningless and empty.

I suppose we have to be thankful on Thanksgiving. The rest of the year we can “cuss and spit” and complain. But how can I be thankful? Each morning when I go to God, my prayer starts with my list of complaints, my fears and anxieties, and my list of things about which I am certainly not grateful. He always listens and waits until I’m spent. Then God says, “You through?”

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.

A Christian philosophy of boldness should include the believer’s rights. In fact, it would be incomplete without a list of believer’s rights. I used to teach that a believer has no rights…I was wrong. Now a Christian may or may not choose to turn over his or her rights…but don’t tell me that a Christian has no rights. It simply isn’t true. So what are your rights as a believer?

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.
