Sample text

The reason God’s grace is so offensive to the religious mindset is that it does not compute. Grace doesn’t make sense! It doesn’t add up. We, after all, can count. We know how long we have worked, and we also know how long and hard others have worked. All we want is for our employer to be fair. This parable is offensive because it doesn’t line up with our sense of fair play. How in the world can the role assigned to the landowner of this parable be played by God? Jesus, the king of the kingdom of heaven, is the king who triumphs by losing, who is victorious through the humiliation of the cross and who serves by dying.

Grace involves dependence on the part of the addict—not independence. Accepting God’s grace involves surrender, and few things are as hard to surrender as cherished religious ceremonies, observances and icons. God’s grace is at the heart of the relationship God offers to you and me—it’s the foundation of that relationship. God’s grace, in turn, flows out of God’s love—and God’s love is the very essence and nature of who he is. But we must understand that God’s generous offer of grace is on his terms, not on ours.

The life and teachings of Jesus are a great reversal—a truly upside down kingdom! Though Jesus was God in the flesh, his earthly life was one of humility and sacrifice. He was born into a blue-collar, working class family, and was specifically born in a barnyard, surrounded by animals. Shepherds, whose profession was regarded by that culture as among the lowest of the low, were the first to be invited to visit the newborn Jesus—and they accepted the invitation! Mary was an unmarried teenager when the Holy Spirit overshadowed her (Luke 1:35), impregnating her with Immanuel—God with us (Matthew 1:23).
