The follower quotes are taken from the book The Grace and Truth Paradox by Randy Alcorn
“The cost of redemption cannot be overstated. The wonders of grace cannot be overemphasized. Christ took the hell he didn’t deserve so we could have the heaven we don’t deserve. If you’re not stunned by the thought of grace, then you aren’t grasping what grace offers you, or what it cost Jesus.” (pages 29-30)
“Grace never ignores the awful truth of our depravity. In fact, it emphasizes it. The worse we feel we are, the greater we realize God’s grace is…You and I weren’t merely sick in our sins; we were dead in our sins. That means I’m not just unworthy of salvation; I’m utterly incapable of earning it. Corpses can’t raise themselves from the grave.” (pages 31-32)
“Humility isn’t pretending that we’re unworthy because it is the spiritual thing to do; it’s recognizing that we’re unworthy because it’s true.” (page 32).
Truly, grace is beyond amazing!
