Giving Grace a Shout Out!

One of my favorite theological themes is found in Ephesians: “the Church, the Body of Christ”. Ephesians 4:13 says, “the Church is to maintain the unity in practice which Christ has brought about positionally.” In other words, though we are all believers here, it is going to be difficult to always get along-but you must! And the way you do that? Well the answer there is the other major theological theme in Ephesians (and everyone’s favorite!) GRACE. How sweet the sound! The letter’s joy-filled emphasis on divine predestination points to grace as the primary instigator of our reactions. Because of the grace given to us we should be able to forgive so much, to give so much, and to love so well in our various ministries and lives.
