Living For Grace vs Living For Pleasure

Just do whatever feels good and doesn’t hurt other people. Good advice, right?

No. That is horrible advice. Like, really bad.

Don’t be tricked into putting the pursuit of pleasure before the pursuit of obedience. Learn to imitate Jesus, rather than people around you. Grace cost Jesus everything. Truly living by grace will cost us too. That’s a fact. But it’s worth it.

“But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.”

All of us face times where we have to choose between living for grace and living for pleasure – make sure you know in advance which one is really going to give you the life you want.

Read Romans 5v15 here:



The Price Of Perfection

Everyone loves free stuff. But we all know that free stuff usually isn’t worth much.

Like, you don’t get a free iPhone at a conference. You just get a free pen. So we tend to think that anything free isn’t costly. That’s so not true about grace. It’s what makes grace so staggering, so astounding. It cost God everything. He paid the price of his perfect, powerful Son. And he still did it for you, and for me, for free.

‘For he rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.’ (Colossians 1v13-14)

Do you see how much He loves you?
