For a while now God has got me on this path of discovering grace more and more (and I suspect that this will be a life thing.)
In particular what has been bothering me is trying to understand the sinful nature. In trying to study this thing (because of sins in my life that won’t seem to go away) I’ve been led into trying to understand our relationship – as Christians – to God’s law and moral codes. Shaun Mackay was to ‘blame’ for setting me on that path – and for that Shaun I am so grateful!
What I’ve been finding is better news than I thought he Gospel ever was! That we have NO RELATIONSHIP with the law whatsoever!! None! I mean, absolutely none! Many people have accused this idea of being ‘greasy grace’ or ‘cheap grace’ and I’m finding that grace is actually even more than just cheap — it’s absolutely free!!!
Whether you agree or disagree, I’d highly recommend you listen to Rob Rufus’ series on grace at the link below. Download the MP3’s in the BLUE block (they’re free- like grace… he he.) Take a listen and feel free to comment here if you would like – agreements or disagreements.
As a personal testimony, the more I’m discovering how free and easy grace is, the less I am sinning (sins that I know about, at least.) Coincidence? I think not. Grace means that God’s Spirit is free to move! Here’s the link
