We Are Not Saved by “Grace”

WE ARE NOT SAVED BY GRACE

“For all that we speak of grace, and however strongly we speak of it, we will remain prisoners of spiritual insecurity for as long as we imagine that we are independent islands. And rightly so: all spiritual blessings are to be found in Christ alone… If we simply speak of salvation by grace, people will imagine grace to be that force God gives to help us where we are at… grace can be thought of quite impersonally, as if being a believer is merely about believing promises and getting blessings… we are united to Christ, to know and love him personally from the heart, to know and love the Father as our Father, to be known and loved as children of God. It’s not quite that we get ‘grace’: we get Christ.” (Michael Reeves)
