“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again.” — 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Today I offer you quotes from day 13 of a call to die by David Nasser on Grace.
“God’s grace is an incredible thing.”
“Mercy . . . ‘not getting what we deserve.'”
“Grace . . . we ‘get what we don’t deserve.'”
“Not only did we not get what we deserve, Jesus got what we had coming to us. He then offers us what we don’t deserve — forgiveness and salvation.”
“Grace is like an unlimited credit card with Jesus paying the bill.”
“We shouldn’t say, ‘I’ll just do what I want and “charge it” — He’s paid for it anyway.'”
“Cheap grace is grace without obedience, right doctrine without passion, the shell without the substance.”
“The opposite of cheap grace is costly grace.”
“It cost Jesus the anguish of Gethsemane and the agony of Calvary.”
“The grace of God doesn’t make it OK to sin because the price has already been paid. No, it transforms us. It exposes sin and produces in us a genuine sorrow for it.”
“It isn’t a principle that saves us. It is Jesus [who saves us].”
“His grace is, indeed, free to us, but it cost Him His life.”
Grace . . . I’ve gotten what I definitely don’t deserve.
