“Grace is an outrageously relational term.”
– Dr. Ed Khouri
“How is the indwelling Spirit not relational?” – David Crabtree

There is so much to say about Grace both in the definition and its context. Here are a few key grace points by way of summary. For example, New Testament Grace cannot be understood from an Old Covenant point of view.

A Time of Governmental Shift

It may sound slightly presumptive to say “another grace revolution”, but the last big revolution about Grace (after Paul) was back in Martin Luther’s day, 500 years ago. “Revolution” does sound like a strong word to use to use in the context of Grace. However, in light of the need of ‘governmental shift’ or a change or even overthrow of the ‘old regime’, it is an appropriate word to use and at least I may have your attention. We do need to push Grace back to the forefront.

Contending for Grace

The Holy Spirit Commences a New Age Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit marked a pivotal transition point in world history. Jesus’ ministry, death, and resurrection made this transition possible.  The Grace that Jesus provided is the greatest empowering gift God could give a fallen world. Not only are believers saved, but they are…

The Apostle Paul states that we now live in the New Covenant and under a new “administration of grace” (Eph 3), and have the living presence of the Holy Spirit. We are now empowered and governed by the Holy Spirit. Grace, therefore, needs to be redefined in the context of that New Covenant.

Jesus is fully Lord or not Lord at All

Without trying to sound trite, it really IS about Jesus. He is the Lord of Grace. The Holy Spirit is fully in there too as He is called the Spirit of Grace (Heb 10:29). It is also about belief and unbelief in Jesus. He is either fully capable of saving and empowering us in righteousness, or He is not. Leaning to Law to assist with righteousness means we think that Jesus is less than able, which practically means we no longer trust His abilities to comprehensively save or to rule. Sounds very much like unbelief to me!
