Responsivness to Grace
We joyfully experience the astounding, undeserved love of God and His ongoing power to transform us. His transforming love and power are inseparable from one another.
John 3:16–17; Ephesians 1:4–5, 2:8–10; Romans 5:6–11; Mark 5:1–20
God scandalously loves His lost creation and extends grace to us, empowering believers to love Him and others at a higher standard than the law.
John 3:16–17; Hebrews 1:2–3; John 14:6–7; Isaiah 9:6;
Colossians 1:19, 2:9; John 1:1, 18; 8:1–11, 19
Deeply experiencing grace teaches us about righteousness, which empowers us to overcome sin and failure. The Father’s love keeps us from focusing on sin or hiding in shame if we fail.
Ephesians 3:14–21; 2 Corinthians 3:17–18; Titus 2:11–13;
Colossians 3:1–5; Acts 2:14–41
Nothing is impossible with God. Therefore, no person or situation is beyond His ability to bring complete restoration.
Matthew 17:20; Mark 10:25–27; John 15:7; 1 Corinthians 6:9–11; Psalm 103:1–7; Luke 1:34–37
