Scandalous

“Because grace is scandalous.
Grace does not make sense to our tiny human brains.
We can’t control it. We can’t draw boundaries and borders on it.
And when we try I think it breaks God’s heart.
I think we insult the cross when we act as if we can ‘out sin’ it.
I think we wound our father when we think we can ‘out filth’ his love.
I think we hurt our Christ when we believe
that we have found the end of his grace.”

Jon Acuff,
Stuff Christians Like
