At Kindred Grace, we see grace as threefold. The grace God showed to us by sending His perfect Son to die for us. The grace we need to give ourselves for our failures and imperfections. And the grace we desire to show to each other through our words and actions.
Grace is the undeserved love, forgiveness and acceptance that Jesus shows us. It’s the way He patiently and consistently shows us a better way, but doesn’t abandon us when we fumble. It’s Him loving us just as we are, but also loving us into a better person.
Grace is the recognition of God’s abundant blessings that are transforming our lives. It is the realization that there is no room for self-righteousness in hearts that have been given life by His transforming love. It is releasing our pasts and our pain into the covering of Jesus’ love and forgiveness.
Grace is love with no conditions — abundantly given. We haven’t just been blessed with the gift of grace to hold to ourselves, but we’re called to extend grace, too. Leaving the gray areas gray and not trying to turn them black and white, remaining firm in our convictions yet always holding to an attitude of teachable humility.
