An Outline of Grace - January 7, 2022

Paul entered Scripture as Saul, the self-professed Pharisee of all Pharisees. He was bloodthirsty and angry, determined to extinguish anything and everyone Christian.

His attitude began to change on the road to Damascus. That’s when Jesus appeared, knocked him off his high horse, and left him sightless for three days. Paul could see only one direction—inward. And what he saw he did not like.

So God showed him a better way. Paul got grace…or grace got Paul. Either way, he embraced the improbable offer that God would make us right with him through Jesus Christ. Paul’s logic followed a simple outline: Our debt is enough to sink us, God loves us too much to leave us, so God has found a way to save us.
