The Lord’s Invitation
In response to God’s savior and His marvelous grace God openly invites all to come. This invitation is for the thirsty, the broke, and even the misguided. This invitation is for everything you need or ever wanted. But you must come with humility and respond with hope to receive his offer.
God has made a remarkable provision for all wandering sheep to return to Him through His servant, Jesus Christ. This incredible act of grace, once understood, has major impact on a person’s life. Isaiah 54 is the exposition of the power of that grace.
The Gospel or Law
There is a stark difference between the gospel and legalism, yet it can easily be confused. We must be serious about protecting the gospel in our lives. Paul leads us in to how we do this.
Transformed by Grace
God’s deepest hope for each of us is not just a simple, happy life. Nor is it limited to just making it to heaven. His deepest hope is your transformation into the kind of person fit for heaven, who then can truly live with real joy and peace. This can only happen when we have a genuine encounter with God. When we recognize Him for who He is, it humbles us in our sin, and then (and only then) can we be rebuilt by His grace. Transformation really takes off once we are then commissioned into God’s mission.
Grace Makes Givers
We often think we’ll become better givers the moment we have more. A little extra in the bank, more space in the schedule. The reality is, we only become givers when we fully appreciate how much we ourselves have been given.
Grace Greater than Our Weaknesses
God’s grace was designed to permeate all aspects of your life. It was meant to draw you, forgive you, and ultimately be the agent that transforms you. One way it changes you is helping you deal with your weaknesses from a God-centered worldview and not a man-centered one.
