Rare Christianity: Different, Kristian Carlson, Faith Community Church, Sep 15, 2013
Grace is a gift. It changes everything. The way we naturally respond to it is to want to offer our lives to God. We don’t know how big the change will be. How simple the task He’ll assign us. Or how beautiful the result will turn out. But it will be worth it and we will be changed. The effect of grace is that you are different. Romans 12 tells us: “Don’t be conformed any longer after the pattern of this world, but be transformed.”
Transformation—becoming very different than we had been before, through Jesus’s influence, is something that we should expect in our lives and in our church.
The following question, if applied to the relationships and environment in which we find ourselves will help us to seek God’s will, and to be the difference needed: How would this relationship or place be different if Jesus Christ’s authority and grace were present here?
