002: The Incredible Power of Grace

God’s grace is much more than we know. It’s not just for salvation. It’s crucial to our transformation.

In this episode, I share my personal story of how God allowed me to come to the end of myself in order to experience the depths of His grace.

If you’ve felt stuck in try-hard Christianity and lost sight of the goodness of the Good News, this episode is for you.

We’ll be discussing…

  • When we don’t understand God’s grace, we begin to hear everything through the lens of WORK-based Christianity.
  • When it becomes about us and what we can accomplish for Christ, we live in condemnation and fear.
  • It is not what we do, but what Christ has already done for us.
  • God wants us to live a holy life, but He never expected us to do it alone.
  • In His grace, God not only saves us, but He wants to give us the power and desire to do His will.
  • As God reveals areas for growth, simply agree with the diagnosis. Then ask Jesus to bring the cure and partner with Him in the transformation process.
  • Allow the Holy Spirit and the grace of God to work within you!
