Love and Loss—Universal Experience. Grace—Universal Need.

Saturday, November 22, 2014

And He [Jesus] said to me [Paul], “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.  2 Corinthians 12:9-10

mbb 3D 400pxLove turning to loss is a nearly universal human experience in our fallen world.  We encounter these trying stories everyday: the death of a family member or close friend, the dissolving of a marriage or relationship, the loss of a job or a home to disaster or foreclosure, or perhaps the end of a long-awaited dream.

To varying degrees, all of these losses cause pain and grief.  They destabilize and consume us.  They make life seem bitter and God far away.

If love turning to loss is a universal human experience, then God’s grace is the most universal human need.  But what is grace?  The word is spoken frequently, but how does God dispense grace and how do we receive it?

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we will be discussing two elements of God’s grace—His saving grace and sustaining grace.  This grace is the culminating message my new book, My Boy, Ben—A Story of Love, Loss and Grace.

While the circumstances of your own story of love and loss may be different, it is God’s grace that we all so desperately need.

NOTE: Thank you to all of you who made the launch of My Boy, Ben such a blessing!  We were touched by how many listeners attended the launch event and by how many books were ordered this first week.  As a thank you, we are offering listeners to The Christian Worldview $2 on all orders of My Boy, Ben through the end of the year when you enter “DAVID” in the coupon code field.  Thank you!

Sustaining Grace (Nov. 24-30, 2014)

What is grace?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Grace is often defined as God’s “unmerited favor” where He gives us something of great value that we do not deserve and can not earn.  The greatest demonstration of this grace is God sending His Son to die in our place so that we can be forgiven and made right with Him.

Another way to think of grace is God’s supernatural power.  This is the power that saves us and helps us overcome temptation.  It is also the power of God that supports us in our trials.

When the apostle Paul asked to have his thorn in the flesh removed, Jesus instead offered His sustaining grace, saying, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
