Please, God, show me mercy! Open your grace-fountain for me, for you are my soul’s true shelter. I will hide beneath the shadow of your embrace, under the wings of your cherubim, until this terrible trouble is past. (Psa 57:1)
What is Grace? Preston Sprinkle, an Author, puts it this way:
You cannot sanitise grace… Grace is messy and offensive, and it sometimes misses church. To expect God to pump prefabricated plastic moral people out of a religious factory is to neuter grace and chain it inside a gated community…
God meets us in our mess and pushes holiness out the other side… the real stuff. The holiness that serves the poor, prays without ceasing, redeems the arts, loves enemies, elevates community above corporate success, and preaches the life-giving Gospel of a crucified and risen Lamb in season and out.
Grace ... where on earth would we be without it?
