Pages To Turn


In The Beginning...

I was writing random things about Grace last night. I'm going to type them up, and I want to hear COMMENTS. I don't even know if I'm on the right track with these ramblings, I just know that I wrote them and I need to figure out whether or not I'm right.

Grace is not s omething meant to be collected or shown off. Grace is just as precious when first given as it is after a repeat offense --- in fact, I would say it is held in more esteem and considered more precious the less it is dispensed. The point is not to recieve Grace. The point is to Glorify God. The reality and recognizement of God's glory is the whole point of everything God does.
In Romans 6:1-2, Paul makes it clear that Grace is not the end-all. We are given Grace as an opportunity to do what, in our own strength, we would be unable to do --- pursue righteousness and be transformed to reflect the image of Jesus Christ.
We do not strive to recieve gifts, we strive to bring a worthy gift to our God and Savior.

I don't know what my point was with that, but... if you see one, notify me. =P

Love Never Fails,



  1. Notes aren't supposed to have a point - you're just supposed to read them and hopefully be provoked into thinking. :)

    Let me know how the BB goes. (I know you will anyway.)

  2. Yes! I comprehend!

    It blesses me to keep in mind that grace is an outpouring of God's love for us. Not because we're so lovable or anything. =D But that God so LOVED the world that he gave his one and only Son (grace.)And I glorify him all the more for it!

    Are you looking forward to reading Murder in the Cathedral? I haven't started it yet.

  3. I actually got it yesterday, and read it twice this morning. I L-O-V-E it!!! I'm finding subtle Biblical allusions all through it, which excites me to no end. =)
