The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Hebrews 4:16 (Christ reveals that God is so full of grace that His throne deserves to be called a throne of grace. We are not accustomed to thinking of authority carrying grace, much less that much authority carrying that much grace. Lord Acton said that “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” and this is absolutely true where men are concerned. However, God has absolute power and yet there is no corruption in Him at all. Thus we see the glaring difference between God and men where character is concerned. We need no coaxing to notice the difference between God and men where power is concerned, but the gap between God and men when it comes to character is just as great.)
Colossians 2:3 (Wisdom and knowledge are key aspects of grace.)
Revelation 22:21 (The fountainhead of grace is accessible to all. Amen.)
