It's All About Grace - Part 1: Grace Welcomes

September 17, 2017 Pastor: Ryan Rice Series: It's All About Grace

Topic: Grace Scripture: Romans 15:1–15:7

The church needs to welcome one another no matter what their background, ethnicity, or financial circumstances. Grace is God’s goodness toward those who don’t deserve it and God uses people just like us to showcase His grace.   Jesus associated with the undesirables, many of whom were rejected by Jewish leaders, but He never compromised the truth of “I am the way the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father but by Me.”   The word of God is food for the soul.  It is for our instruction.  If we are going to welcome people in we need to be a light to others.  We don’t all need to be the same, but live in harmony.  Welcoming people into God’s grace is about coming alongside others to bring them together in Christ. By following Christ’s example, we can help lighten load and build others up.
