Grace can be such a fuzzy concept. At times I have tried to grab hold of it only to find it slip out of my grasp. This book gave me a firm hold on grace. It is no longer something fuzzy. It is now a concrete concept. I understand grace. I understand God's bigness and how special it is that he came to me and loved me.
In this book, Chris Lautsbaugh really did tell me everything I ever did or tried to do or thought. I feel like he was in my head while writing this book. Read it and you will find the same thing!
-We must read our Bible every day
-We must pray every day
-We judge another's sin to be worse than our own
-We have a Jesus + ______________ mentality
"Grace breaks all the rules. Grace is not bound by human logic. Grace says the secret to the Christian life and being a good Christian is simple. It is not a Jesus + formula. It is Jesus. Period."
The author challenges his readers to ask themselves as to what is their motivation behind their Bible reading, praying etc. If it is just another checklist of to dos and not motivated by our desire to have a growing relationship with the Lord then we are still a struggling superhero. We should want to do the Christian disciplines because we want to know God more.
His book closes with the question: So how do we apply grace?
"Slowly. Little by little. By falling and getting back again...Growth in grace is linked to our growth in Christ-likeness."
This book was a refreshing reminder of God's grace as not just a one-time event at salvation, but as being daily at work in my life. I highly recommend this book for those who are caught up in their "To do" list for God and believe they always come up short.
