“For the Christ follower, there are no racial or cultural reasons to withhold grace from anyone, because everyone is one faith step away from becoming a spiritual brother or sister in Christ – a bond that runs deeper than blood.”
Patrick Linnell from @grace.bomb
I heard Pastor Linnell speak with Blake over on the @crappychristiancopodcast and was immediately drawn to this idea of getting into the habit of extending overwhelming grace to people we don’t even know – without needing anything in return. I immediately ordered the book and tore through it – it’s a quick read and there are some fun illustrations to boot!
I think I had a post earlier this week about being “nice” and really this has nothing to do with being a nicer person and everything to do with showing the love of Jesus to our neighbors. Not the people that live next door to us but our real neighbors – people we don’t even know, and who may not like us very much.
We should be known as people of grace because we are a people who believe we’ve been given a gift that none of us deserve.
I’m so into this message. I was going to post this on Monday but I didn’t want it to wait. Check out their account and I highly recommend getting the book! 🙌
