By Max Lucado (trade paperback)
We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.
When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no?
Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?
God’s grace has a drenching it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downess about it.
Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.
Let’s make certain grace gets you.
Grace will be used for Rev. Clyde White’s Fall Session Bible class.
