I have heard it used quite often and sometimes something about the way it is being used...well, it bothers my spirit. So I have decided to do a little searching around.....in the Bible and in some sources available.
I am concerned that in the coming times we may not have been prepared in the way that
God intends because we are taking a gift given freely...without any type of "exchange life".
So I will be thinking and praying on this.
If a warrior goes through much training....giving up the life of freedom like one does when enlisted in the services-- then as a believer who has given their life over to God.....what does that life look like? What does the enlistment requirement time look like?
I think it is a little more involved than...Ops, I messed up let's slap a little grace on it.
Ops, there I went again where is the bucket of grace to throw on it.
I know that sounded a little harsh or sarcastic.....not the attitude I am going for...promise.
I just want to know if at any time or in any way I am
using or selling a...... Cheap Grace.
So that is what I Googled this morning-----cheap grace.
I found this......Has anybody heard of this guy and is this a good trust worthy source?
I don't want someone to make me feel good and tickle my ears.
God told us the road would be narrow and few would find it.
If this walk is so easy-let's face it we are not being beaten for our faith nor do we find ourselves really hurt by the ridicule of unbelievers--- so do you think maybe more are on the wide road and they think it just has expanded or the years?
Romans 5:20 (The Message)
20-21All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn't, and doesn't, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it's sin versus grace, grace wins hands down. All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that's the end of it. Grace, because God is putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life—a life that goes on and on and on, world without end.
