God Is Better Than We Think

You may not be aware of it, but there is a lot of debate by Christians about the subject of grace. Some think of grace as a “topic” or “doctrine”. It is neither of those things.

Grace is in fact the gospel itself…

What do we mean by grace? The definition of the word as it is most often used in the New Testament is unmerited favor. It refers to the fact that Jesus paid the price for all of your sins: past, present, and future.

Grace means that God will “remember your sins no more”.

You don't need to remind him through some ritualized confession process. Your work at feeling guilty, mournful, and condemned does not buy you an extra ounce of grace. You couldn't afford an ounce. Or even a gram.

Some Christians become very concerned about what they think of as this “greasy grace” or “cheap grace”. They warn us that we must be careful, not take this too far, and that we must balance the teaching of grace with the keeping of commandments.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Keeping commandments does not earn you grace.

Grace produces all the fruits of the spirit, without using fear as a tool of manipulation.

There is no fear in love.

Fear-based fruit is filled with poison, as history proves.

I've admired Jennifer's work for some time now, so when I was asked to be a guest speaker in a private mastermind group, I was honored.

For those who ask for episodes that are “all about copy”, this fits the bill. Jennifer and her group asked some great questions and I think you'll find value in my answers.
