The gospel says that from Christ’s fullness we have received grace upon grace. Grace with more grace. Grace on top of the grace we’ve already received.
I love what Andy Stanley says about it:
“The church, or I should say, church people, must quit adding the word “but” to the end of our sentences about grace. Grace plus is no longer grace. Grace minus is no longer grace. We are afraid people will abuse grace if presented in its purest form. We need not fear that, we should assume that . . . Of course grace will be abused. But grace is a powerful dynamic. Grace wins out in the end. It is not our responsibility to qualify it. It is our responsibility to proclaim it and model it.” – Andy Stanley, The Grace of God
