Don’t Misunderstand Grace
By Dan Moose
Many times grace is misunderstood. Grace misunderstood teaches us easy-believism for salvation (prayer of accepting Jesus and going on my way) and gives us license to do what I want instead of obediently following Jesus. On the other hand, grace misunderstood causes many to buy into the idea that we are saved by grace, but must work out our salvation in our own strength. But Titus 2:11–14 says:
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession, who are zealous for good works (ESV).
