As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.
2 Corinthians 6:1
This is a peculiar expression by Paul, but he was highlighting the tendency for Christians to do what Bonhoeffer called ‘cheap grace’. Where we take the Lord’s forgiveness at every cost to him but not laying any of our life down in response.
How can we avoid falling into the trap of cheap grace today, ensuring that we respond to the forgiveness of God with repentance and faith?
Jesus, teach me not to take your grace for granted, but lead me to respond to your sacrifice for me with the laying down of my wants, selfishness and priorities for you. Amen
