Grace & Truth

November 7, 2006 — Leave a comment

Saw this today at Evotional. Good thoughts on knowing yourself.


John 1:14 says that Jesus was full of grace and truth.

Grace means I’ll love you no matter what.
Truth means I’ll be honest with you no matter.

Jesus was the perfect combination of both. Unfotunately, most of us aren’t :)

So here is my question: are you more grace-oriented or truth-oriented? Where do you fall on the grace-truth spectrum? I think it is important to know your tendency because it will dictate how you to respond to situations like this. And the truth is: one without the other doesn’t cut it.

Grace without truth is Christianity without a backbone.
Truth without grace is Christianity without a heart.
