Grace is Never Temporary

Good morning…

Two great quotes to start the day.

“The church is not a theological classroom. It is a conversion, confession, repentance, reconciliation, forgiveness and sanctification center, where flawed people place their faith in Christ, gather to know and love him better, and learn to love others as he designed.”  – Paul David Tripp, Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands

“He never mocks your weaknesses or throws your sin in your face. He never gets tired of you or gives up on his relationship with you. He doesn’t ask you to earn what you can never deserve, and he never makes you feel guilty for needing his good gifts. His love isn’t conditional and his grace is never temporary.”  – Paul David Tripp, New Morning Mercies

This Sunday I’m preaching You’re Going to Need This–New Eyes.  We’re going to jump jump into Luke 18:35-43. You can listen to the first sermon in this series, You’re Going to Need This–Faith, here.

See you Sunday,

David Emery

P.S. Paul David Tripp is a new author I discovered recently. I’m looking forward to reading his book Dangerous Calling. It’s a book about the unique challenges that ministers face.  One more quote.

“You need to preach a gospel that finds its hope not in your understanding and ability but in a God who is grand and glorious in every way and who has invaded your life and ministry by his grace.”- Paul David Tripp, Dangerous Calling
