Reflections Along the Jesus Way

January 7, 2024 – Quote for the Day:

“God’s grace is alive and well – it is dynamic – it is the fundamental description of our relationship with God.  God’s grace is unique – no religion, other than authentic Christianity – teaches and believes in God’s amazing grace.

Years ago, during a British conference on religion, experts from all over the world debated about what was unique to biblically based Christian faith. Was it the idea of the Incarnation – God, in the person of Jesus, coming to be one of us? No, other religions have teachings about gods who appear in human form. What about The Resurrection? No, other religions believe in a return from death.

The debate was raging until a man named C.S. Lewis came into the room. If you are not familiar with the writings of C.S. Lewis, you need to make that a priority. Read his books – like Mere Christianity, The Problem of Pain, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce – among others.

C.S. Lewis asked, ‘What’s all the rumpus about?’ When the delegates to the conference told him that they were discussing what authentic, biblically based Christianity teaches and believes that is truly unique to all world religions, Lewis replied, ‘Oh, that’s easy. It’s grace.’”
