Encourage Yourself With Grace and Truth

May 17, 2019 |
Grace and Truth - a weekly Christian link up

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.

Life with four fun-filled teens doesn’t always provide the quiet atmosphere her introverted personality and chronic migraines crave, but she loves them all like crazy and the gospel is a balm for her soul.

    Heather – I hate to admit it but I struggle with grace a bit. I know it is a gift but I fight the desire to try and earn it. I have no trouble giving it to others but it is in the receiving. I am a work in progress. Heading over to read the post you featured.

      You will love it, Maree. We all have our struggles. Sometimes I wished I struggled with trying to earn grace. Maybe then my house would be clean… But, I’m a work in progress too, so I’m just thankful that it’s there. And that God is so good.
