Either the web is finally alive again with some really good content, or my heart is finally alive again to recognize it. Here is a great post on Gutsy Grace by Dan Phillips over at Team Pyro. Here’s an excerpt.
Paul says that the grace of God indeed has appeared in Christ and brought salvation — but God’s grace did not stop with merely an external, bookkeeping re-categorization. The inspired apostle writes that grace — grace! — actually trains us in holiness. It is our pedagogue (παιδεύουσα, paideuousa) in sanctification, in holy and hopeful living.
* I wonder who has the time over at the Pyro’s to come up with the myriad of graphics (shown above without permission) they use. Creative, humorous, prolific.
