With breakthrough understanding, this book reconciles the disconnect between God's faithfulness to Christians and their unfaithfulness to Him. Scotty Smith, pastor of Christ Community Church in Franklin, Tennessee, a high-profile congregation known for its ties to the Nashville music community, challenges readers humbly and honestly to consider what it means to be stewards of God's grace -- to live a life of obedience and service in response to His wonderful love. ^
With bold perspective and soul-searching honesty, author Scotty Smith dares us to explore the radical nature of the grace of God, addressing such questions as: What does it mean to be a good steward of God's grace? Is God more concerned about my happiness or my holiness? When God brings freedom, healing, and peace, what's supposed to happen next? If God's love is so compelling, what does it compel me to believe, do, and become? As believers, we are sometimes more interested in a masseuse rather than a Master. Smith dares to remind us that God's love is as disruptive as it is delightful, as demanding as it is delicious! God loves us exactly as we are today, but he loves us too much to leave us where we are. As objects of God's affection, we are called to live as subjects in his kingdom -- under the reign of his glorious grace. Book jacket.
