Quote of the Week- On Grace

by - Sunday, April 08, 2012

Rather than picking a single author, I am just going to pull a couple reflections on grace, which it seems to me is what makes Easter a really beautiful holiday.

"Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times." - Martin Luther

 "No one was ever saved because his sins were small; no one was ever rejected on account of the greatness of his sins. Where sin abounded, grace shall much more abound." Archibald Alexander

"But what we can do, as flawed as we are, is still see God in other people, and do our best to help them find their own grace. That's what I strive to do, that's what I pray to do every day." - Barack Obama

I love this one:

"The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you." Frederick Buechner
