One Way Love…continued…yet again

untitled

I am reading Tullian Tchividjian’s new book, ONE WAY LOVE (INEXHAUSTIBLE GRACE FOR AN EXHAUSTED WORLD). Tullian is the grandson of Billy Graham and the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Letting Tullian speak for a few blogs. (See previous blogs).

“(It’s) a little ironic … most of the things we tend to define ourselves by are things we’re going to lose anyway…”

“…You are not who others see you to be, and you are not who you see yourself to be; you are who God sees yo to be – his beloved child, with whom he is well pleased.”

“Constant introspection makes us increasingly self-centered – – the exact opposite of how the Bible describes obedience or goodness.”

Application is almost always a code word for law.

“Grace begins where pride ends.”

“Grace is radically unbalanced.  It contains no but:  it is unconditional, uncontrollable, unpredictable, and undomesticated – or else it is not grace.”

“Grace is wild. Grace unsettles everything.  Grace overflows the banks.  Grace messes up your hair.  Grace is not tame.  In fact, unless we are making the devout nervous, we are not preaching grace as we ought.”  (quoted from Doug Wilson)

This wraps it up. I hope you will read Tullian’s book and be blessed by it as I have been.

So, let us without reservation embrace and enjoy God’s unlimited grace.

Grace to you.
