God’s Guy – Lesson 2

So often, we start our Christian lives making promises to God. Promises we can’t keep. Like Paul wrote in Galatians 3:3 we are foolishly trying to live the Christian life in the flesh rather than the Spirit. And that was me. But I finally realized I needed to go back to the simplicity of the grace I responded to at the end of a summer camp at 12 years old. What about you? When did you respond to the grace of God? When did you realize that as Paul wrote in Romans 5:8 “…God demonstrated his own love for [you] in this: While [you] were still [a] sinner, Christ died for [you].”? C.S. Lewis wrote: “When Christ died, he died for you individually just as much as if you had been the only person in the world.” As a result of God’s grace, we are forgiven people, we’ve been made alive in Christ, we share in His resurrection, His grace teaches us to say “no” to sin, builds us up, gives us an inheritance, and so much more. So rest in the sufficiency of God’s grace as you walk through this life with Him. (Introduction, page 2)
