Grace is still Brilliant News!

The Grace we’re talking about is the same kind of Grace that was/is in Jesus Himself. The Grace that is in Jesus was not the “unmerited favor” kind of grace, but Grace that meant the “empowering presence of God.” That kind of Grace need not be feared as inadequate or unable to deal with sin. Jesus’ Grace not only saved us (all who believed) but also gave us the power to be righteous, and power to do the works of Jesus. Brilliant news indeed!

UnfailingGrace – the New Covenant Revolution

UnfailingGrace is all about the promotion of New Covenant Grace and the empowered life we live loved and accepted by God. Grace is so radical that it offends those who want to add their good deeds to the faith that brings righteousness. We are saved through faith in Jesus alone. Grace is the empowering presence of God that comes through the in-filling of the Holy Spirit. We can only be accepted by God through Grace alone, and He is able to not only declare us righteous (justification) but also make us righteous (sanctification), all through Faith.

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.
