Greetings! A blogging friend of mine Sojourner recently had an exceptional post called: Sweet Unfairness on the topic of grace. Using a personal story and one of the parables of Jesus, he skillfully shares challenging thoughts on grace, fairness, and forgiveness. I really hope you’ll take the time to read it.
Years ago there was a conference in Britain on comparative religions. Experts were debating what, if any, belief was unique to the Christian faith. They were having a difficult time reaching a conclusion when CS Lewis walked in the room. Lewis’ reply as to Christianity’s unique contribution among the world religions was:
Oh, that’s easy. It’s grace.
Grace is amazing….it is scandalous. We seem to have an inbuilt resistance to it. Grace is not fair!! And that is the point actually. I hope you’ll be challenged by Sojourner’s thoughts in his post “Sweet Unfairness.”
