How to show grace to yourself and others

Grace is Greater

“Grace has nothing to do with worthiness. Grace does not depend on what we have done for God, but rather what God has done for us.” Award-winning author, renowned theologian, and influential speaker, Philip Yancey, reminds us of God’s amazing grace that is so personal and lavish. And it isn’t for us to keep for ourselves! Listen in as Philip shares how the grace we show points others to God and how we can extend it to those in need.

Christlike compassion.For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. Titus 2:11-14 ESV

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. John 16:7 ESV

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:35 ESV

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 NIV
