Guest Post – Living in Grace

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” -Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)

Justice has no room for grace and grace has no room for justice. To live in one excludes the other. In justice you deserve what you receive. Grace, undeserved favor, is the opposite. Grace has NOTHING to do with deserving! Grace is a gift of compassion and provides freedom, peace, and contentment.

“What can I do?”  It’s a question that’s often raised, either in sincere inquiry or more as a statement of inability. It’s not a lack of ability that usually keeps one from being involved as much as it is a lack of desire. There is no one specific ability or talent that God wants in service to Him, as the talents He has blessed us all with, whatever they may be, all have a place of service in His kingdom.

Pictures and portraits of people have been around throughout history. In time, famous artists started focusing on themselves, painting self-portraits. Rembrant, Van Gogh, de Goya, Renoir and Rockwell – all created selfies long before “selfie” was a trendy word.

Don’t Labor in Vain Day

Unless the Lord builds a house, its builders labor over it in vain; unless the Lord watches over a city, the watchman stays alert in vain (Ps. 127:1, HCSB).

Most of us have worked hard to get where we are today. If you’re like my wife and me, you periodically reflect back over your years of laboring. In our case, we can hardly believe it’s been 43 years. I was in my second year of seminary in Scotland.

We had just enough savings between us to squeak through the year. By the time we got back to the States, I had decided not to pursue ministry as a profession but was unclear about what I would do as an alternative. We borrowed money from my mother for the first month’s rent and security deposit on an apartment. No furniture, no job, no prospects, and practically no money — our future was uncertain, but that didn’t seem to matter.

In the summer of 1983, between semesters of my seminary days, I was standing behind the counter of my father’s fast food restaurant when a small boy reached his arm up and released a fist full of coins onto the counter.

The smile on his face could melt any Dairy Queen blizzard. Raising his eyes to mine, he simply stated “A vanilla cone please.” Looking at the coins still rolling on the counter, I knew he didn’t have enough. Taking my index finger, I began to count the silver and copper. When there was none left to be counted, the boy’s face grew very solemn. He too knew it wasn’t enough. I reached into my pocket and pulled out a couple more coins and placed them alongside his own.
