The Game-Changing Message of Grace

I’m sure you’ve heard the term “game-changing”.

Recently, “game-changing” was used to describe Apple’s new iPad.

Because it’s such a new product, the jury is still out on whether or not it is a real game-changer.

Will the iPad change how we use computers? Will it change the industry?

I don’t know… yet.

Here’s what I do know: the message of grace is game-changing.

It changes how we relate with God.

It makes the old system (of law, works and sacrifices) obsolete.

Grace has ushered in a new system of relating with God through the once-and-for-all sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Instead of depending on myself to be righteous (which always leads to failure and frustration), now I can depend on Him to make me righteous (which always leads to freedom and joy).

Grace has changed my failure to freedom and my frustration to joy.

The Bible describes the game-changing message of grace:

“But now Jesus, our High Priest, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the old priesthood, for he is the one who mediates for us a far better covenant with God, based on better promises. If the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no need for a second covenant to replace it.” (Hebrews 8.6, 7)

“This same Good News… is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed our lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.” (Colossians 1.6)

Grace changes me and it changes you.

Grace has forever changed the game.

It changes how we relate with God.

It changes our motivation.

It changes our attitude.

It changes the rules.

It changes our fears.

It changes our focus.

It changes our mission.

It changes our agenda.

It changes the outcome.

It changes our outlook on life.

It changes the way we see others.

The truth is… grace changes everything!
