    In our text for today, we see that Jesus extended grace to kids in a rather unique way.

    The Setting for Grace This won’t be too surprising to those of you who know Don and Tim Tuley. I just found out that when they were young boys, they got into a lot of trouble. Whenever something went wrong in the neighborhood, or in school, they were usually to blame. Ray and Bernice didn’t more

    None of us should become so familiar with God’s grace that we stop searching for it or appreciating it. ­

    The Search for Grace This past week I had the opportunity to lead chapel services at Evenglow Retirement Center. Since I was scheduled for every day this week, I decided to speak on the theme of grace. On Monday, when I was meeting with the piano player before the service to pick out some hymns, more

    Grace is scandalous. It’s hard to accept, hard to believe, and hard to receive. Grace shocks us in what it offers. It is truly not of this world. It frightens us with what it does for sinners.

    (MacArthur’s New Testament Commentary was used in preparing this message.) The Scandal of Grace In this series, we’ve been learning about the topic of grace. As we look at how Jesus dealt with people and at some of His parables, we’re discovering that these “Grace Encounters” radically more

    The Scope of Grace Since most of you are familiar with the story of the Prodigal Son, I thought I would read a different version of it ­ it’s called the “Prodigal Son in the Key of F.” Feeling footloose and frisky, a feather-brained fellow forced his father to fork over his farthings.

    This morning, we’re going to encounter someone who was in desperate need of grace. She came face-to-face with her sin ­ and with Jesus ­ and drank deeply of the “Sensitivity of Grace.”

    The Sensitivity of Grace If you’ve been with us for the last four weeks, you’ll know that we’re in the middle of a series called, “Grace Encounters.” As we look at how Jesus interacted with people, we’ve been learning about how grace can change our lives. In the first message entitled, “The more

    If you and I want to have relationships that last for the long haul, then we must be willing to extend forgiveness to others. Here’s another way to say it: In every relationship you have, you will constantly be called on to forgive and to ask for forgiv

    The Standards of Grace I heard about a man who really loved dogs. He devoted his life to them ­ he read about them, studied them, and even gave talks about them to other dog lovers. One day he decided to pour a new sidewalk in front of his house. His neighbor watched from his window as he more
