Grace ~ Review

GRACE
More Than We Deserve  Greater Than We Imagine
By Max Lucado

Grace is God's greatest work and He is giving it to us.  But what is Grace?  Grace is God replacing our dying diseased filled heart with His heart.  When we are accused by the world and by ourself we feel the fiery wrath of condemnation, but Jesus gave up everything for me to free me from the punishment of condemnation.

But forgiveness does not eliminate guilt because guilt can be the catalyst that makes us want to change.  Satan's guilt enslaves while God's guilt frees.  God punishes my sin while forgiving me the sinner.

While God already knows all my sins I need to confess to Him, this is the evidence of my trust in His grace.

God wants us to be His children, He chose us and wants to give us His name.  He loves us and we don't have to earn it.  God's love and His salvation is not performance based.  It is a gift, the "perfect personal gift" - Grace.

At the end of the book is a reader's guide by Kate Etue.  There are 12 studies on for each chapter so that the reader might delve deeper into the different aspects of grace.  There are additional Bible verses and review questions about grace.

GRACE  is perfect for personal, family, or group study.  The meat of the book is 151 pages with an additional 50 pages for the reader's guide.  Grace will be a true blessing to your heart as you come to further understand this gift from God that will reshape your life.
