DEVOTIONAL

Today's featured devotional...
flowers twineIn today's world, and even in many of our churches, grace is no longer amazing; it is boring, just as J. I. Packer has diagnosed: "The thought [of grace] means nothing to them; it does not touch their experience at all" (Knowing God, 129).

It is true that, in this age of human rights and animal rights and every other kind of right, grace is neither needed nor appreciated. People are no longer enthralled with the grace of God because they believe they are good without God and that everyone has the right to go their own way. Therefore, the world rejects any concept of sin—not to mention the judgment such rebellion deserves. And so, it spurns the awesome grace of God.

Out of His love, God came to us.

This grace is the defining characteristic of Christianity, making it absolutely unique among all religions. For, whether we are talking about the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, the Hindu doctrine of karma, the Jewish ceremonial laws, or the Islamic sharia law, all other belief systems tell the story of how mankind is striving to earn God's favor, to earn salvation. But Christianity is the story of how God reached down to mankind out of His great love.

In Christianity, no one can reach God.

He is holy, divine, righteous, and mighty. Therefore, no one can buy or earn his way into heaven; it is simply impossible. So, out of His love, God came to us. The notion that the God of the universe saves sinners with no strings attached goes against every human instinct and runs contrary to every other religious system in the world.

You see, Adam and Eve's temptation is precisely the temptation of today. They sought to be masters of themselves and tried to establish their own authority—their own way to reach (even be) the divine. This refusal to obey the commands of their loving, holy Creator ushered in death, just as they had been warned (see Gen. 2:16-17). Through their rebellion, Adam and Eve scorned the extravagant love and grace they had experienced as they walked with the one and only God.
