Love & grace have moral backbone

Every person has the right to believe that some things are morally wrong. Love respects that right. It doesn’t accuse someone who disagrees with their moral principles, of “hating” them.

Grace sensitizes the human conscious. It doesn’t silence it. If our heart and behaviors haven’t been changed to align with biblical morality, we’ve received something other than God’s grace.

Grace doesn’t mean that sin doesn’t matter anymore. It means that we have been given power to live in victory over sin. Love and grace have moral backbone!

True grace makes us hyper, when we violate God’s morality. It motivates and empowers us to turn away from sin and to follow and obey the risen Jesus.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
