Cutting Edge Christianity: Real Grace
“I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ” (Philemon 1:6).
God will change your life forever as you read and apply the principles taught in Real Grace: Disciples Making Disciples. It is unavoidable. God knows the joys and the pain of your life. When you come face to face with our God, who loves and knows you to the depths of your being, scum and all, you cannot help but be changed.
When God speaks, light pierces darkness, violent storms become peaceful, worlds are created, bodies are healed, death is conquered, bitter winter turns into spring, captives are set free, and life begins. This book is full of God’s powerful Word. The Almighty God of this universe cares about you and He wants to bring His restoring presence into every area of your life. God has a plan and purpose for us through the struggles and victories of life.
Until I understood that sharing Christ’s love and life and investing significantly into the lives of others was a part of God’s great plan for me, my Christian walk was becoming a stagnant pool instead of a flowing river. I loved God and I knew Him, but my relationship with Him had grown old. I didn’t enjoy church anymore. I felt like reading the Bible and prayer was more of a routine than a conversation with God. I was missing out on the Real Grace that God intended for me through investing in others’ lives as Jesus did.
Real Grace will help you grow in your journey with God. If you do not know much about God, you will be amazed at what He has in store for you. If you have grown up in the church and know God and His Word well, but have not learned how to communicate God’s great plan in the context of meaningful relationships, you will be blown away as God’s life in you flourishes. If you have already been investing significantly into the lives of seekers and believers, you will be blessed with another great tool to share with others. It is quite amazing that the God of this great universe doesn’t need our help but He calls us to participate with Him in building His Kingdom. We have the honor of participating in breaking the power of sin and darkness by sharing the life-giving good news of hope in Jesus Christ with a hurting world. Real Grace is a tool to help us live out the Great Commission and participate in transforming lives!
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).
