GLIMPSES OF GRACE IN OBSCURE PLACES…JONAH
February 9, 2020
What is grace? A retro-sounding girl’s name? The pious words we recite before we dig into the meatloaf and mashed potatoes?
How about this: “Grace is the unmerited dispensation of God’s benevolence toward his created beings.” That’s how Dr. Jim Logan, my professor of systematic theology in seminary, defined grace. Kinda deep.
I like this much better: “Grace is a gift which we do not deserve but God gives to us anyway because God loves us—with no strings attached.”
