Lazy grace?

By Dave Henning / August 7, 2014

Tullian Tchividjian begins Chapter 9 (“Objections to One-Way Love) of One Way Love by asking this question: “Does grace make you look lazy?”  In all honesty, states, the initial application of grace inspires sighs of relief and extended breathers that make it appear we’re doing nothing- lazy grace. However, in the long run grace has […]

Control vs. grace

By Dave Henning / August 6, 2014

“Grace is radically unbalanced.  It contains no but: it is unconditional, uncontrollable, unpredictable, and undomesticated- or else it is not grace.”- Tullian Tchividjian As Tullian Tchividjian (One Way Love) continues his discussion of Jesus’ meal at the home of Simon the Pharisee, he observes that, unlike the other dinner guests, we have compassion for the […]

Our (second) best friend

By Dave Henning / August 4, 2014

Self-forgetfulness

By Dave Henning / August 2, 2014

As Tullian Tchividjian continues Chapter 7 of One Way Love, he discusses what Timothy Keller refers to as “the freedom of self-forgetfulness”.  When we spend more time being introspective than thinking about Jesus and what He’s done, Pastor Tchividjian notes, we shrink into ourselves. Freed from the burden of establishing our own self-worth, God’s one-way […]

Transformative grace

By Dave Henning / July 28, 2014
