The Question of the Gospel of Grace

“The question which the gospel of grace puts to us is simply this: Who shall separate you from the love of Christ? What are you afraid of?
“Are you afraid that your weakness could separate you from the love of Christ? It can’t.
“Are you afraid that your inadequacies could separate you from the love of Christ? They can’t.
“Are you afraid that your inner poverty could separate you from the love of Christ? It can’t.
“Difficult marriage, loneliness, anxiety over the children’s future? They can’t.
“Negative self-image? It can’t.
“Economic hardship, racial hatred, street crime? They can’t.
“Rejection by loved ones or the suffering of loved ones? They can’t.
“Persecution by authorities, going to jail? They can’t.
“Nuclear war? It can’t.
“Mistakes, fears, uncertainties? They can’t.
“The gospel of grace calls out: Nothing can ever separate you from the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel
