The Grace of God

Andy Stanley
Also Available In

"Grace. It's what we crave most when our guilt is^exposed. It's the very thing we are hesitant to extend when we are confronted^with the guilt of others-especially when their guilt has robbed us of something^we consider valuable.

^^

Therein is the struggle, the^struggle for grace. It's this struggle that makes grace more story than^doctrine. It's the struggle that reminds us that grace is bigger than^compassion or forgiveness. That struggle is the context for both. When we are^on the receiving end, grace is refreshing. When it is required of us, it is^often disturbing. But when correctly applied, it seems to solve just about^everything.?? This struggle is not new; it has been going on since the beginning."

^^

-Andy Stanley

^^

We find in the pages of Scripture^that the stories found there often mirror our own stories, and that??we??too need the very thing we do^not deserve: the grace of God.

^^

From the beginning, the^church has had an uneasy relationship with grace. The gravitational pull is^always toward graceless religion. The odd thing is that when you read the New^Testament, the only thing Jesus stood against consistently was graceless^religion. The only group he attacked relentlessly was graceless religious^leaders.
^
^

^^

Even now as you think about grace, there might be a little^voice in your head whispering, "It can't^be that easy!"

^^

"What about obedience?"

^^

"What about disobedience?"

^^

"What about repeated misbehavior?"

^^

"What about bad habits?"

^^

"What about justice?"

^^

"What about repentance?"

^^

It's^this tension that makes grace so slippery. But that's the beauty and the truth^of grace. We don't deserve it. We can't earn it. It can't be qualified. But God^gives it to us anyway because he loves us unconditionally.

^^

The story of grace is your story. And as you are about to^discover grace plays a larger role than you imagine.

Learn how God's grace can and will transform you.

^

None of us deserve what God offers, a life free from the ravages of sin and hope for a glorious future, but unbelievably it's ours for the taking. Why? Because of grace. God's grace. The unmerited favor, the lavish love and kindness that he pours out on us, and has, since he walked in the garden with Adam and Eve.

^

But if it's so available then why do we live a grace-less life? Why are our churches filled with disillusioned Christians, weary of the demands of religion, struggling with personal defeat because of issues and behaviors?

^

Join pastor Andy Stanley as he traces grace through the Old and New Testament, observing God's grace at work in the lives of some of the best, and worst, characters. He also uses personal stories from his own life to reveal how grace is not a natural response but is the most essential one. Together these stories unravel the mystery of grace and tell of its transforming power to set us free.
