    Freedom In Grace

    Freedom In Grace

    God’s grace is the foundation of our freedom, a sure gift made available to us again every morning. Every mistake we make is covered. Every sin is forgiven. And my hope is that as we center our hearts and minds around God’s grace, that his forgiveness and mercy open a pathway to true freedom for us today.

    His Grace Is Sufficient

    His Grace Is Sufficient

    Grace is a gift most of us don’t know how to receive. We’ve been so inundated with the earthly systems of give-and-get and work-and-earn that grace is a concept few ever fully grasp. Yet it’s grace alone that has the power to transform lives. Grace alone has the power to bring freedom to the captives. By grace alone we are saved. Today we’re launching a new series, taking time every day to discover and receive the grace of our good and loving Father.
    Our Scripture for today comes from 2 Corinthians 12:9, and today's worship is Good Grace by Red Rocks Worship.

    For the last day of our weeklong focus on being the child of God, we’re looking at how our status as God’s child can never been taken away from us.

Easy But Deep

Today’s episode re grace vs works and comparing it to transactional system was one of the best I have ever heard on this complex concept; especially in such a short time.
The daily devos are quick and easy to incorporate into a daily habit. The episode webpage and it’s worship music link and further video study links are great for those who have more time or want to dig in deeper.
