God's Gift of Grace

Dear Corey,

I’m going to move away from James this week and talk about something else. Over the past week I’ve been reading a book by C.S. Lewis called, “What Christians Believe.” I would highly recommend it as it shows the differences between Christianity and other worldviews. It is a good reminder to be thankful for the saving grace of Gad and for showing us the one true way. C.S. Lewis compares religion to a math equation: “It [religion] is like a math problem. There is only 1 right answer. Every other answer is wrong no matter how close they are.”
It just continues to amaze me that God would send His Son to die for our sins. The Bible lays out God’s grace very well in the following trail:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

“For it is by grace you have been saved, not of works, lest any man should boast.”

I want to share a story with you that I don’t think I’ve told before. There is one thing that Christianity contains that no other religion does. Glean from this story what you will:

“At a meeting of Christian leaders someone asked the question, ‘What separates Christianity from other religions?’ All of them thought and thought about the question, but couldn’t find an answer. After they had thought about the question for hours, C.S. Lewis walked into the room and asked what they were talking about. When he had been told the question, he replied, ‘Oh! That’s easy: Grace!”

Your BIC,
