Signs of Grace

  • A sign you’re growing in grace: the main foolishness you’re thinking about is the “foolishness of the cross”
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re still pursuing your spouse, five, ten, twenty years later
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: The lure of personal peace & affluence is steadily losing ground to Jesus’ kingdom reign
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: More and more you sincerely ask Jesus to help you love difficult people, as He loves you
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: You apologize because you’re genuinely sorry, not simply because you hate conflict
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not known as an “us-versus-them-kind” of a believer
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: You’ve ceased monitoring and measuring everybody else’s growth in grace, or lack thereof

  1. Thanks Joel – nice reminders . . .

  2. You’re welcome, Tim. Have a great Resurrection Sunday. Awesome to think that there’s a new Gospel-proclaiming church in NYC that wasn’t there 5 years ago.
