God’s Grace Is So Amazing!

July 20, 2016

“…Loving like Jesus means loving people while they sin and not loving them more when they celebrate victory over some specific sin. But let me be clear about one more thing: even the most spiritual among us will never love exactly like Jesus in this life.

And when we fail badly to love well, God does not love us less. He is then glorified as the God whose grace is so amazing that it is always provided, whether we love well or not. But the more we celebrate His grace that loves us at our worst, the more we will long to battle for the better love we receive from Jesus.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, A Different Kind of Happiness, Page 38

Questions for Reflection:
• Is there someone from whom you are withholding love, based on their behavior?
• What would it look like for you to love that person as Jesus does – not denying their sin but responding to their sin in ways that reveal God’s heart for them?
• How has your own experience of God’s grace toward you fueled your desire to love others as He does?
