The Doctrine of Grace

If I had to choose one thing to really, truly GET, to have settled on my insides this year, this would be it.

If the people do not like the doctrine of grace, give them all the more of it.
—Charles H. Spurgeon

Because...

"Rules cannot bring freedom; they only have the power to accuse. It is true that relationships are a whole lot messier than rules, but rules will never give you answers to the deep questions of your heart and they will never love you."
—William P. Young

I'm so glad He doesn't give up on me when I forget to extend grace. Great statement, Jodie.

Jodie said...

Yeah, me too. I think what happens is I mostly get it wrong in my head about what's expected of me. I'm learning that it's not about expectations, and I like learning that. It's freeing.
