Saved by God's Grace - for Today and Eternity

Paul Tripp recently posted his thoughts on the reality that while many who claim Christ do believe in new life after death, they still desperately need to understand that in Christ they also have a new life right here, right now before death. He suggests four things that those who struggle with this need to understand about God's grace.

1. Grace will decimate what you think of you, while it gives you a security of identity you’ve never had.
2. Grace will expose your deepest sins of heart, while it covers every failure with the blood of Jesus.
3. Grace will make you face how weak you are, while it blesses you with power beyond you ability to calculate.
4. Grace will take control out of your hands, while it blesses you with the care of One who plan is unshakable and perfect in every way.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2:4-5)
