We can believe in Christ but not be changed by Him. Sometimes there is a disconnect between what we say and what we do.
Living by faith is a brave decision to do life God's way.
God's grace changes things when we put it into action, letting it reshape our relationships around Jesus and following His prescription for living. It involves putting the Bible into practice by loving others even when it doesn't come naturally and forgiving people we don't think deserve it, including ourselves. Even if God does not change things, He will change us, giving us a bigger and better perspective.
We are all a work-in-progress. God's transformation is a process of growth, a day-to-day choice to trust God not only when it's easy but when it's hard. A choice that ushers in power to do the impossible, and that's what Disruptive Grace is about. A grace that invites God's transformation no matter what we have been through and regardless of our present circumstances.
Let's make that brave decision of 1 John 3:18—“To not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
