When we consider all the qualities that Jesus demonstrated, it is amazing that in John 1:14 God reduces them down to just two: grace and truth. Traditionally people put the majority of their focus on one or the other, but doing both at the same time can be quite challenging. Author Randy Alcorn states, “Truth without grace crushes people and ceases to be truth. Grace without truth deceives people and ceases to be grace. Truth without grace degenerates into judgmental legalism. Grace without truth degenerates into deceitful tolerance…We who are truth-oriented need to go out of our way to affirm grace. We who are grace-oriented need to go out of our way to affirm truth.” In this teaching Dan Gallagher shows specific examples of how Jesus modeled both grace and truth, and how walking in his footsteps, we can do the same.
