Grace

What's God really like?

If you believe in God, the next question is, “Okay, what kind of God do you believe in?” To be honest, many of us carry around such distorted views of God (gods not worth believing in) that coming to see God more clearly needs to become a top priority.

Is the god you believe in distant?

Difficult?

Angry?

Unforgiving?

It’s time to meet the God of grace. This is the one, true God, the God of the Bible.

If we fail to realize the goodness of God’s heart, his tremendous love for us, or his relentless desire for a relationship with us, we will never trust him or welcome his involvement in our lives. If, however, we begin to internalize the message of grace, we will see God more clearly and be drawn to him through his son, Jesus.

Summary:
Grace: our confidence in the fundamental goodness of God toward us.
Foundational texts: Exodus 34:6; Luke 15; John 1:14; Ephesians 2:1-10.
