GRACE CHANGES EVERYTHING!
Hebrews 12:15 says, “See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”
We don’t want to miss that…in this series, we will be focusing on the Grace of God. Grace should be what marks our church and what makes us distinctive as Christians. I’m afraid that this is what has happened to people in many churches over the years. Somehow, for some reason, they missed the grace of God, and a bitter root began to grow. In Hebrew culture, any poisonous plant was called a “bitter” plant. The author of Hebrews uses a “bitter root” as a metaphor: any church that misses grace is poisonous. Part of what needs to happen so that no one misses the grace of God is for us all to acknowledge that we need grace, too. Grace isn’t about pointing a finger at someone, it’s about raising our hand and saying, “I need God’s grace.” My prayer is that we would be quick to say “But God…” and even quicker to raise our hand to the need of His all-sufficient Grace.
The goodness of God’s grace is only experienced when we understand how much we need it! - Pastor Doug
