The Grace Awakening 2

There are killers on the loose...grace killers! The are intolerant, judgmental, bullies, and narrow-minded. They intimidate people into a state of shame and fear. They have "no" faces instead of "yes" faces.

The Grace Awakening 1

In the 1980s a theological debate raged between what has been called "Lordship salvation" and "free grace." Both have valid points and value. Yet, many fear grace and would kill the grace of God they see in others. Legalism is a deadly foe!

Paul's words in Romans 8 provide us with a great antidote for fear. We have all known fear of one sort or another. The knowledge that God withholds no good thing from us, that no one can effectually accuse us, and that our salvation is secure gives us stable ground on which to live our lives.

Knowing God- Part 56

Our Christian birthright does not involve sinless perfection, but is a promise of peace, hope, and joy even in the reality of our trials and struggles. Peace, hope, and joy do not mean we never feel concern or discouragement, however.

Knowing God- Part 55

Romans 8 can be viewed as emphasizing the adequacy of God's grace and the adequacy of the God of grace. If God and His grace are sufficient for us, what does this truth mean to us? To those to crave righteousness and face great pressures this truth is hugely consequential.

Knowing God- Part 54

The book of Romans is, in a sense, the central point of all Scripture. It contains all the key elements necessary to the Christian life. However, our appreciation of this magnificent book will depend upon who we are and where we have been in our Christian life.

There are consequences for believing wrong things. A "pie in the sky" view of Christianity will leave us wonder what is wrong with our faith or our devotion when things go wrong or when we suffer. The truth is that we may have lost sight of what grace really is!

Knowing God- Part 52

There is a version of Christianity that is just too rosy and unreal to life. It promises health, wealth, and ease. When these are not experienced the blame falls on the Christian- they lack consecration, holiness, or faith. Actually, it is the doctrine that is wrong.

Knowing God- Part 51

Do opposition and hardship mean that we have missed God's leading? No! In our obedience to God we often find that hardship is part of the road. Even if we do get off track, our God is able and willing to see to it that our course is corrected and we are restored!

Knowing God- Part 50

Can we ever really and irrevocably miss out on God's will for our lives? Will He let us miss His will when we seek Him for direction and desire to obey Him? Many Christians live life fearful of failing to rightly discern God's leading for their lives. In this study there is great hope and comfort for this fear.
