Paul is very direct about the gospel truth. His letter to the the Galatian churches is a great example. They needed directness because they went from believing the true gospel to being drawn back into religion. We face the same challenge. Whether from internal condemnation in our thoughts or from the world outside, we are challenged to focus on our shortcomings. We receive the message that we must work our way back into God’s favor. But the word grace means “unmerited favor!” We can’t earn it. And in order to live in the rest and peace of that truth, we must change our understanding. The purpose of this devotional is to provide a 31-day immersion experience in the grace message so that you can renew your mind to the true gospel.
Acknowledgements – Many teachers have influenced us and continue to doso. Some of the things we’ve picked up from them have become part of us. We never want to ignore these influencers, though we might not always recall exactly when or where we heard something that prompted anything we share here. Please take note of names like Joseph Prince, Andrew Wommack, and Dan Stallbaum. If we say something that sounds like one of them, chances are there is a seed in us somewhere from their teachings. If you aren’t familiar with them, we recommend that you make the effort to connect with some of their resources.
