We’re considering the effects of poor grace on our lives and practicing the lenses we need to experience the riches of grace.
In this episode, we’re discussing:
What POOR grace is and where it comes from…
How poor grace IMPRISONS you and can negatively affect your relationship with God…
Why God doesn’t LIVE with you according to your BEHAVIOR…
How you can RECEIVE the kindness of God and EXPERIENCE the riches of His grace…
This devotion is drawn from page 52 paragraph 3 at the beginning of the section “Poor Grace is Always Negative” through page 53 paragraph one in Letter 5 of THE NATURE OF FREEDOM (2017).
1 John 2:1-6: My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.
John 3:16-17: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
Romans 2:4: Do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness, tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads to repentance?
