Grace & Truth exists to point people to Jesus! We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement each and every week. If you’re a blogger our hope is that you’ll use this space as a way to meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader our hope is that you’ll meet new bloggers that love Jesus just as much as you do! Most of all, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.
At the beginning of each new link-up week, the Hosts will post their favorite post of the week, to be “featured” (see below for directions on how to be featured!). Welcome to week 3 of #GraceTruth’s link-up! I hope you are enjoying getting to know new faces, new sites, and new beautiful words. I have been blessed by my visits. We had a sad loss this week, but hope to be up and at ’em from now on.
One of the first posts I read last week was When Grace invites work addicts to dinner by Anne at Front Porch Inspired. I have to say that Anne had my vote from the first few sentences I read. I even told her in the comments that someone else would need a spectacular post to knock her off the top of my list.
The post is a beautifully woven word picture of what Grace really is, as Anne shares her story of legalism. She compares works to a drug that a legalistic person needs to get a “fix” of every day. I would love to quote the whole post, but I’ll let you read it. I just have to share at least a tiny bit (but MAKE SURE you go over and read the whole thing):
I wait, without that stockpile of goodness to hide behind. I wait, craving something to chase after and to achieve for Him. I’m still jumpy to run to earning His favor, securing His love. But, He says it’s my withdrawal. That means it won’t last for ever, I tell myself, and Redemption will win.
And, Grace keeps calling for me, inviting me to come out from behind that stockpile and to face Him – just me, no do-good mask on and no badges of God-glorifying victories on my chest. Just me.
It’s vulnerable here. It’s raw and shaky. But, praise God, the call of Grace is relentless.
Thank you, Anne, for sharing your words with us and for being my featured post this week. I think you might already have this button, but if not, here you go:
Now, on to week 3!
