"Every religion has its own answer to this question: What do we have to do to be saved?  Some encourage sacrifice; others, service; others, rituals of purification or meditation.  What all have in common is some human effort to achieve favor with God.  This may include knocking on doors with pamphlets, giving away wealth, self-flagellation, or confession and restitution.  The common thread, however, is human effort to reach God's height.  Christianity alone moves in the opposite direction.  Rather than us climbing upward, Christianity asserts that God moved downward." ~ Mark Moore
So, what is this action of God moving toward humanity called?  It's called grace, and it's the one thing that we need to focus on before we talk about anything else.  

In this podcast we are excited to have author and speaker Daniel McCoy with us to help launch our new sermon series, One Thing and teach to our church family about God's grace.  Daniel is the editor of and has been a guest teacher with us over the past year.  Don't miss out on this great opportunity to deepen your understanding of Scripture and find rest in God's amazing grace...we know that you will find it to be helpful!
