Living in the Fullness of His Grace

Sometimes we understand that Jesus forgives us and saves us by grace, but there is a part of our life that we want to hang on to and keep for ourselves. It might be our money—as in the case of the rich, young man—or our autonomy, personal control or some other area of our life. Whatever it is, our identity is built on that part of our old life that we want to retain. Jesus’s solution is for us to die to that one thing so that we can live in the fullness of His grace. (From May 10/15. Based on 2 Cor. 5:14-21 & Mt. 19:16-26.)
