Very excited about starting a teaching series Sunday called No Perfect People Allowed. It’s really about the amazing truth of God’s grace. God’s grace is bigger, more forgiving and more freeing than anything we can imagine. Grace isn’t deserved and can’t be earned. There is simply nothing like it. It changes our eternity, improves our relationships, provides strength in trials, and even restores our joy. When grace is correctly applied, it seems to solve just about everything.
Yet, church history shows that there is always a pull toward a graceless religion. Jesus stood against graceless religion and consistently attacked graceless religious leaders.
I love how Pastor Tim Keller put it, “God sees us as we are, loves us as we are, and accepts us as we are. But by His grace, He does not leave us as we are.”
