God’s Grace Appears to Us
“Love God and do whatever you please: for the soul trained in love to God will do nothing to offend the One who is Beloved.”
God’s Grace Trains Us
“[To have Faith in Christ] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.”
― C.S. Lewis
God’s Grace Makes Us . . . . . Us!
Legalism: What we do leads to who we are.
Antinomianism (No Law): What we do does not matter.
Grace: Who we are leads to what we do.
Gospel + Safety + Time = Culture of Grace
