The grace of God is not something that is understood very well in our day and age.
The typical view of grace is “Unmerited, or undeserved favor”… which is true, but that is an incomplete, shallow view of something awesome God provides for us.
Please watch the video, and see the true depth and wonder of God and His amazing grace, by which He brings His children into conformity with His will and purposes.
There’s also a bit more commentary below, for after you check out the video.
The well-respected German Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer had a few things to say about “cheap” versus “costly” grace. He wrote:
Cheap grace is to hear the gospel preached as follows:
“Of course you have sinned, but now everything is forgiven, so you can stay as you are and enjoy the consolations of forgiveness.”
The main defect of such a proclamation is that it contains no demand for discipleship. In contrast to cheap grace, costly grace confronts us as a gracious call to follow Jesus. It comes as a word of forgiveness to the broken spirit and the contrite heart. It is costly because it compels a man to submit to the yoke of Christ and follow him; it is grace because Jesus says: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Bonhoeffer was on target, and it cost him his life at the hands of Adolph Hitler.
