Intro to “Grace”

We all talk as though we understand the term grace. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. We describe an ac-tress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We talk as though we know what grace means.

But bestselling author Max Lucado says we’ve settled for a wimpy grace, a goldfish grace that sits in a bowl on the shelf and never causes trouble or demands a response. There’s more to grace than we’ve ever imagined. In this new series Lucado challenges participants to not only receive grace but also to be changed by grace. Shaped by grace. Strengthened by grace. Emboldened by grace. Softened by grace. Snatched by the nape of their neck and shaken to their senses by grace.

“See to it that no one misses the grace of God.” Hebrews 12:15 NIV
