If You Think You Get It, You Don’t

Unfathomable slide.001You may have noticed that at Creekstone we have one big drum that we beat all the time: God’s grace changes everything. His unfathomable love is what compels us to live as devoted disciples of Jesus. We are devoted to him because he is devoted to us. We love him because he first loved us.

But on occasion someone will say, “McKay, I already get it. I understand grace. When can we move on?” It is at that point that I know something. I don’t know everything, but I know this: If I think I get it, I don’t. And if you think you get it, you don’t. And I will prove it this Sunday.

This “assuming I get it already” is one big reason why that I experience such lukewarmness in my relationship with God and with others. I don’t love well because I don’t know the unfathomable love of God, which is why I will be teaching a sermon series in February entitled, UNFATHOMABLE: How the Vast Dimensions of God’s Love Empower the Visible Expression of Ours.

Until Sunday, have a great rest of the week!
