Better Than Fair, Grace

Better Than Fair, Grace

Do you want fair or do you want grace?

Ephesians 2:8-9
8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— 9 not from works, so that no one can boast.

  • Saved By Grace
    • It’s not about me
  • Don’t Spend Your Life Trying To Figure Out Fair

Matthew 20:13-15
13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’

    • “It’s Not Fair” – Are You Envious Because I Am Generous?”
    • Grace Is Not Fair
    • Love Is Not Fair
    • Sacrifice Is Not Fair
    • Instead of being grateful for what I have, I am consumed with what someone else has
    • Fair is generally focused on the past
    • Grace is focused on the possibilities
    • The Father Was Willing To Endure A Judas To Give Us A Jesus
  • Jesus Was Still Casting At The Cross
    • But why would he cast to the crowd that is crucifying him.
    • Why would he cast to a murder who has lived his life in rejection of him?
    • Grace got them both
