The Grace System

There is a system of grace! 

It’s not just a pie-in-the-sky concept. There’s salvation in grace, there’s service in grace, and there’s reward in grace! It’s counter-intuitive to us. As children of this world, we are inherently a law-based, reward seeker. Why do you think every major religion and theology around the world is based on it–karma, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Taoism, you name it – it’s the same concept.

Grace makes little sense to us, because it does the one thing we hate most: it gives the glory to another. And… it’s not fair. In grace, the reward is not based on your merit or your strength or the vigor of your work. It’s based on the generosity of the One who rewards.

Consider the parable of the 11th hour laborers. 

Those who worked the last hour were given the same wage as the ones who worked all day in the field. The ones who worked longer thought it wasn’t fair. Wouldn’t you? And the vineyard owner harkens back: 

"Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?" Matthew 20:15

This is grace.
