Scandalous Grace

Friends, I appreciate your show of support here by honoring what I was trying to say.

It has been brought to my attention that what I wrote could be construed as insensitive in light of the fact that there is a community trying to rebuild in Aurora– people are still suffering, grieving.

I think of that mother, lying in the hospital, coming in and out of consciousness, not knowing that her six year-old is gone. How would she feel reading my words?

My wife and I have a six year-old. How would we feel had we lost her?

It is easy to speak truth, but having not walked in their shoes, I felt it best to save “Scandalous Grace” for another day.

I hope you understand.

  • I love this! Very well written, Chad. This is grace. This is love. Sinners need to feel God’s loving embrace. It’s easy to pray for those we love. It’s hard to pray for those we don’t.

    • Thank-you.

      I agree: it is hard to pray for what we see as unlovely.

    I think the only people who won’t get grace are those who won’t ask for it.

    • Is that not the unforgivable sin? To have salvation available, and to consistently reject it?

      The choice is quite clear: willingly humble ourselves now, or be humbled later.

    GREAT POST, friend! Scandalous grace, indeed… All of our names should be added to that list. Put mine on top! *FORGIVEN* is a beautiful thing….. Praying for all involved in this Colorado tragedy.
