Windows to Luther III
Martin Luther was transformed when he began to understand God’s grace. Like many, he had heard the message that he had to do enough, be good enough and have enough faith to be found acceptable in God’s sight. This week, we listen as Paul wrestles with the same questions in the 3rd chapter of his letter to the Philippians. Though Paul had all the “right credentials”, he came to regard his human accomplishments as “rubbish” when compared to the grace and love received through trusting in Jesus Christ. Grace will always be more powerful than our efforts to be "good" – and that’s enough!
