For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves . . .  (Ephesians 2:8 NIV)
 
 
These words are often used in Christian circles, but the misuse of them over time may have made them seem threadbare. Yet they are rich with meaning and purpose. “Saved” means that we’re rescued from perishing. “By grace” is the means by which we’re saved from imminent peril: we have been delivered by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. We’re not saved from our sins by weeping, works, nor personal piety; but “by grace we are saved.” 

 


Living in the In-Between Times
 

As people following Christ, we all experience stop and go, arrival and departure, life and death. We know about living in between pivotal moments. It’s easy to believe that God is not at work in the ordinary. But He is! Through my book Living in the In-Between Times, you’ll discover how God speaks to you, how you can respond, and the significance of decisive commitment to the will of God.
