When Grace Is For Everyone Else But You

Editor’s Note: This article is part of our exciting video series, Who Do You Think You Are? Check out the other videos HERE.

I have struggled with the lie of grace avoidance. It’s a lie that says I am beyond God’s grace. And it’s an odd struggle in some ways, because from an early age, I could recite the passage in Ephesians 2:8 that says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith.” But I was missing the heart behind this truth.

Thankfully, God has been gracious to remind me that it’s not about what I do or don’t do. It’s not about measuring up or keeping a mental checklist of my moral failings. It’s all about what Jesus already did on the Cross for you and me. For FREEDOM He has set us free! (Galatians 5:1)
