Grace is what makes Christianity unique. Whilst works are what we attempt to do for God, grace is His work in us.
Works confine us to the limited resources of the flesh. Grace brings us into the realm of divine ability. If we fail to make the grace connection we end up turning Christianity into just another religion, i.e. another works trip.
There are ten chapters in This is the Life! grace-discipleship workbook:
#1 "Deficient or Sufficient? We may not know all that life will throw at us but we do know we have been made sufficient for all things. Salvation is much more than a free ticket to heaven. It is a complete package for the total journey. The aim of this chapter is to help others understand the new resources that are available to us in Christ, and to make the switch from an 'I can't' way of thinking to a mindset that says, 'I can do all things through Christ.'
#2 "Condition or Position? It is not what we do that determines who we are, but who we are that determines what we will do. The more a believer understands his new-creation identity the more his behaviour will line up with it.
#3 "Change or Exchange?€ Religion says, 'You must change, in order to be accepted.' This leads to guilt, condemnation and defeat. God says, 'The way to acceptance is to exchange your sin for Christ's righteousness.' Believing we are righteous is essential, if we are to be empowered by grace. Grace reigns through righteousness!
#4 "Follow or Abide? Those who follow Jesus have only His example, but those who abide in Him have His life. Which are you living by? We know what it means to be saved by Christ's death. But what did Paul mean when he said, 'We shall be saved by His life'?
#5 "Law or Grace? Law is what we try to do for God. Grace is what He has done for us in Christ. Are God's blessings to us based upon law or grace? How much of the Christian life is an attempt to do deals with God?
