If you’ve read this blog for long, you know that I love the grace the Gospel offers.
And that I’m no fan of the boot-strap Gospel. Nothing in me wants encourage others (or myself) to try-harder or just do-better. Everything in me clings to the fact that Jesus paid it all on the cross.
Because of His sacrifice, we are already, always, completely forgiven.
There is nothing for us to do, because He did it all.
That said, we can’t just lay around all day soaking up God’s grace. There’s stuff to do. Life still needs living.
And that’s why I wanted to feature Lois’ post this week. I can relate to it so much. She focuses on a saying I actually use myself often. Find out what it is by visiting Lois’ blog, LoisFlowers.com.
How Do You Encourage Yourself?
I know you’ll enjoy it. And I’d love to hear from you. What are some of your favorite sayings? Or how do you encourage yourself?
And Lois, feel free to grab the “I’ve Been Featured” button and add it to your post so your readers can celebrate with you.
