You’ve heard about grace.
You’ve received grace.
But what does it really mean to live with grace?
In his book, The Grace of God, Andy Stanley walks us through scripture in a unique and very applicable way. He uses stories from both the Old and New Testaments to show us example after example of grace. He has a wonderful way of sharing these stories in a new light that make them completely relevant to modern day circumstances.
Over and over again, Andy gives examples of people in the bible who did not deserve grace, but they received it. That is true for all of us. None of us deserve grace. But, we thirst for it. After life has left us with unfulfilled desires and dreams, we often face an unquenchable thirst. “God’s response to the thirsty soul is grace.” I loved that! What a great image for us to visualize.
This book is a great reminder that grace is meant to be shared. God calls us to extend his grace. “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.”
I would highly recommend this book.
