Grace – unmerited favor.
It’s a word that scares a lot of us guys. But, I read it described this way recently. Let me know what you think:
“Grace brings change.… And ultimately…heart change that will lead to a change in choices and actions…desires. We need the Holy Spirit to take over our lives to the point that what God wants for us is what we want to do…sanctification…To accomplish this state of holy living, we need God to change our desires from those that are natural to us to those that are natural to him.” (from Napkin Theology)
Additional verses to reiterate – 1 John 3: 9-10.
Summary: The only way to live life to its fullest is under the grace God provides, and only then, will the desires of our heart be truly met.
Someone. Anyone. Call Disney up and tell them that. Especially #9 on this list.
