Living With Grace

Have you ever experienced something you might say was grace? Grace is invisible, so if you’re going to see it, it will be because someone made it visible to you. Maybe in something they said, maybe in something they did – or didn’t do…

Who are the people you will see today? What can you do that will surprise them with grace? The challenge is seeing over the wall of our own concerns and cares, so that we are able to spot the grace moments where God can use us. And what enables us to get over ourselves like that? You guessed it – grace.

Hear Paul encouraging us to live with grace in Ephesians 4 – http://bit.ly/HsWklQ

What Would We Be?

Cape Town band, Goodluck (@Goodlucklive) tweeted the question #WhatWouldWeBe asking people what they thought they would be without those special people in their lives?

We’ve been talking about seeing the effects of God’s grace in our lives. But his grace – his love, his power – extends far beyond what we can see. God loves all people, not just those who love him back. And he works within us long before we ever choose to believe him. Even when we do embrace him, his work in restoring our lives goes far beyond what we can understand.

Why not thank him today for this invisible grace?

For God really does love the whole world.

Looking Up To God

Ever run out of airtime? Or lost internet connectivity? Had your favourite website crash, or your most useful app fail? What then?

A viral video ‘LOOKUP’ offers great advice… unplug from your phone/device and lookup and engage with those around you… (watch it here: http://bit.ly/1p2urRk )

The Creator says: ‘Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’

Why don’t you unplug and LOOKUP to HIM today?

Forgiveness – How Much Is Too Much?

Can I get away with forgiveness as a once-off thing?

‘Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.’ (Matthew 18vs21-22)

This does not mean that when someone hurts me I keep count until the seventy-eighth time and then smack them on the head! The principle Jesus is describing is that in the kingdom of God, forgiveness looks ridiculous.

There is no end to it.

Is there anyone you need to forgive again, again?
