Part two of our ANCHOR collection

Sin does not make us bad. Sin makes us spiritually dead.

This is not a statement he makes for shock value. No, it is a reality we find throughout Scripture. As humans, we have a sin problem. This problem has plagued us from the very beginning (see Genesis 3).

However, God so loved us that he paved the way for the relationship that sin tore apart to be bridged in the person of Jesus. We who were once dead because of sin have been made alive by Christ—that is the topic of this message from Grant Partrick, that is Radical Grace!

Key Takeaway

Jesus, the savior of the world, came down and died an excruciating death so that we may receive mercy and be in a relationship with Him. God knew that there was no service we could do to earn His grace and be washed of our sins –so He sent His only son. It is this grace that causes us to change.

  1. Grace has a name.
    • [John 5:1-15] This man thought he needed the pool, but he needed Jesus.
    • We don’t need a system; we need a savior.
  2. We get what He paid for.
    • Justice is us getting what we deserve. Mercy is us NOT getting what we deserve. Grace is us getting what we do not deserve.
    • Grace is a blood-bought gift.
    • There is no achievement we can accomplish to earn His grace.
    • Your power is the spirit within you.

Quote

“Grace is your power to get through today.”
