Scandalous Grace (Audio)

God’s grace is a scandalous thing. It offers to rescue even the worst offenders and breakers of God’s laws, if they only repent and believe. There is something in this that offends our merit-based mindsets.Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 1.08.26 PM

That’s why I appreciated the reminder and discussion of the “Scandal of Grace” from No Compromise radio. The audio clip is short (about 25 minutes) and well worth the time.

A few highlight quotes from the episode by Pastor Mike Abendroth:

“The worst person listening today is not beyond the gracious arms of a saving Savior.”

“Faith is so opposite to works because faith looks away from self and says I have nothing to contribute, but I’m looking for my contribution from Christ Jesus.”

“if you could get to heaven by being good, how horrible was it for the Father to pour out wrath on the Son. He didn’t have to do that …. why would he have to pour out his wrath and have his son propitiate the wrath of God?”

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
