Grace reaches further

"Thankfully, while our self-righteousness reaches far, God's grace reaches further." - Tullian Tchividjian

The church can only offer so much grace, before we become self-righteous and lose sight of the gift God gave to us. It is a sad reality, but our spiritual blindness can cause pain for others. THANKFULLY, what we should be offering others, is not the church (per se), but rather JESUS. It is when we discover the grace of Christ, that our lives are transformed. We then get to work out our salvation in the body of Christ. The church can't be perfect (yet), because we are still sinners in need of change. One day, the 'Bride' of Christ (the Church), will be made whole and perfect.

So, remember this today:
Our religion can only reach up to a certain point - That is when God's grace takes over.

"Because of his kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it" - Ephesians 2:8-9

1 Corinthians 15:10 - "But whatever I am now it is all because God poured out such kindness and grace upon me."

What do you think about that?

Living in Grace
