“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20–21, ESV).
Grace is not simply a doctrine, but a Person named Jesus who comes to live in us and through us.
Grace does not merely bless us to become God’s children. Grace is fuel that empowers us to grow as God’s children. Grace is not simply a doctrine, but a Person named Jesus who comes to live in us and through us.
Ken Boa, in his life-transforming book Conformed to His Image, provides this excellent chart to describe the difference between religion and grace.
We all need inspiration and transformation. The Creative Arts Team at Transformation Church takes a short snippet from my sermon each week to provide inspiration that leads to transformation. If these weekly videos inspire you, share them!
