Our Values – Thrilled And Motivated By Grace
Thrilled And Motivated By Grace – value summary
The foundation of our relationship with God is his grace toward us. In Jesus he has made it possible for wretched sinners to become members of his family. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are brought close, not because we deserve it but because he loved us with an unquenchable love. We don’t boast of what we have accomplished but we boast in the cross of Christ that leads us to grateful service. God has planned good works for us to do that are to flow out of our knowledge and enjoyment of his amazing grace toward us. We didn’t earn God’s favour by doing anything and we cannot keep God’s favour by doing anything. Grace comes to the undeserving and stays with us as we serve him in and through our weaknesses. It is an amazing truth that weak and frail humanity can bring glory to God through faithful service.
