    Ridge Staff Q&A

    Through Jesus, God has given you grace. How are you going to extend grace to others today? (1 John 4:7-12)

     

    There's no shortage of opportunities to extend grace to others in a typical day for me. The problem for me is doing it. Probably the same is true for you. Reacting to situations with the heart of Jesus is what I struggle with and is what I am praying about lately. My goal today is to take that deep breath and react with love and show grace to both those closest to me, and to the behaviorally challenged kids at school that I deal with. Help me with that, Lord!

Through this five-day plan, readers will be reassured and thankful once again for God’s amazing grace.

    The Good and Beautiful God By James Bryan Smith
    "God wants me to try harder." "God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad." "God is angry with me." We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true--but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. Turning to the Gospels, Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Once you've discovered the truth in Scripture, Smith leads you through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind.  

    Available in the Next Steps room for $10.

    God’s Grace Is Mind-Blowing
