Eternal Life – Lesson 54

As we grow in our knowledge of Christ, things start to happen inside of us. We begin to be transformed in the image of Christ. We are part of a bigger picture. God works in us to connect others to the love of God. That’s really what grace is all about – it’s God work in us to connect us to his love, to enable us to understand, to be grounded in that love and to grow in that love. As we do we see that salvation is much more than me being saved. God uses our story to connect others to that same grace and love. To be part of that plan is the most exciting thing in life. That’s the direction of grace – it reaches down and saves us but it continues to work in us and bring us to the point where we are fully engaged in God’s purpose and plan. The skeptics say that grace is a license to sin. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Holy Spirit works in you to animate your faith, anchor your hope and source your love. He has lifted you out of that old way and ordered your steps to walk in
love. (Chapter 15, page 114)
