Walking in God's Grace- Vol. 4

Jesus Always Study Guide
Sarah Young

Grace. It goes against our grain. It seems we are wired to return the favor, earn our keep, or pay him back. Yet no amount of effort will buy what God’s grace freely gives. Unearned Grace is being treated far better than we deserve. Outrageous Grace pays all our debts. Rescuing Grace never fails to forgive. Glorious Grace lavishes us with love. Saving Grace heals our dysfunction. Transforming Grace sets us free. And weakness juxtaposed with grace displays God’s glory.
