The GRACE and TRUTH Paradox

(2) The GRACE and TRUTH Paradox

John 1:14b We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and only, who came from the Father, full of GRACE and TRUTH!

 

The conflict that exists between GRACE & TRUTH isn’t because they’re incompatible - but rather because WE lack PERSPECTIVE to RESOLVE the PARADOX!

 

GRACE is what we RECEIVE – WHAT WE LONG FOR!
TRUTH is what WE RESPOND TO – WHAT SETS US FREE!

 

Adulterous Woman... (Grace and Truth) - Jesus gave her GRACE! He also gave her TRUTH... 'go and sin no more!' Please Note... People who are FULL OF GRACE don’t throw stones at others!

 

GOD is the ONE who GIVES YOU GRACE (FORGIVENESS) and then He SHOWS YOU THE TRUTH (HOW YOU SHOULD LIVE THERE ON)!

 

Ever heard it said...
"HATE THE SIN - LOVE THE SINNER" (Jesus did this well!)

 

Note to yourself...
-TRUTH HATES SIN!
-GRACE LOVES SINNERS!
-THOSE FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH… DO BOTH!!!

Sunday Snapshot....GRACE

(1) In The Beginning... GRACE (Mat Balgaard)

Grace simply means...

God took the Hell He didn't deserve so we could have the Heaven we don't deserve!

GRACE... “When we’re on the receiving end - it’s refreshing. When it’s required of us - it’s disturbing. When it’s correctly applied - it seems to solve just about everything!”

GRACE... “You can ask for it - beg for it - position yourself to receive it … BUT - the moment you think you deserve it - GRACE IS VOIDED!

GRACE... Birthed from Hopeless Inequity! Unmerited... Unearned... Undeserved!

GRACE... It’s never just enough... It’s always MORE THAN ENOUGH!

GRACE... Whereas God’s expressions of it are innumerable - His requirements for it were minimal!

GRACE... From the very beginning God has responded to the sin of humanity with Amazing Grace!

Don't Miss Sunday @ COC - GONNA BE AMAZING!!!!
