Grace Dispenser

As I was getting ready this morning I saw this tweet and immediately changed my mind on what I was going to share this morning.  I thought this was a great reminder for all of us.

That’s a pretty incredible way to view yourself as you interact with others.  A grace dispenser, a place that people feel the love of God, and not the condemnation of men. Sure sin has its consequences, but what we need to do is to walk along side of our fellow humans and point the way to the One.  This whole idea sort of reminds me of this bit of interaction that a certain woman had with the son of God after she was caught in a ‘compromising position’

10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”

11 “No, Lord,” she said.

And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” John 8:10-11

Dispense it all day.  After all, you have been given so much more than you can ever use!

One of the minor reasons I started writing this blog 4 years ago was to force myself to attempt o become a better writer, and to be better able to express my self in writing.  I will let all of you judge the improvement!

I do realize however, that some people are just blessed with the ability to use simple words to capture great thoughts.  I was reminded of that last weekend when I was thinking about the lyrics to the classic hymn ‘Come Thou Fount’.  This one line from that great poem is I think often overlooked when the song is sung, but full of immense emotion and meaning

oh to grace how great a debtor, Daily I’m constrained to be.

I am always taken aback by this line and how wonderful a blessing the grace we have been freely given is and by how much of a debt we owe that sale grace!

6 As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it.  2 Corinthians 6:1New Living Translation (NLT)

It’s been freely given, and so you are free to give it!

10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10 New International Version (NIV)

Grace upon grace

It’s Friday!! Yeah, what can say, but maybe something exciting and interesting and motivating like this:


16 And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ  John 1:16-17


Make it Graceday for those your encounter today.

Free Queso Day

Seriously!! Queso for FREE!!!

Only today at Qdoba. That’s pretty cool, I may have to load up at lunch. I mean who doesn’t like Queso and who doesn’t like free!

Speaking of great free stuff check this out

What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. (1 Corinthians 2:12 NIV)

That’s probably a better free combo then even Queso!

And then don’t forget these words from the book of Matthew:

Freely you have received, freely give. Matthew 10:18 KJV

Today give out what you received for free! No, I am not talking about Queso, but feel free to share that as well. Give what people love in you and give it for free! (plus a side of mercy and grace)

Super Tuesday

20120306-082013.jpgYeah, it’s Super Tuesday! If you live in one of those states, use your right to vote today.

But really, we need to find another reason to call today Super Tuesday besides just lots of elections going on. Somewhere, there is something that makes this day really appropriate to be called a Super Tuesday.

I immediately thought of Psalm 118, but decided that is a little overused, and kept thinking, what else makes today super? What even supersedes that facts that God himself made the day?

How about this?

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

yeah, that’s pretty super!

Enjoy the Day!
