Death of the Modern Superhero: How Grace Breaks our Rules

By Chris Lautsbaugh

Death of the Modern Superhero: How Grace Breaks our Rules

Description

Have you ever felt like you were just not good enough for God? We are told we must be a good Christian, a loving spouse, a caring and involved parent, active in your community, and so much more.

Can we ever make it? When are we good enough? Do we feel like we cannot succeed in this life unless we are a superhero with superpowers?

Grace takes these expectations of culture and society and turns them upside down. God gives us gifts at salvation that tell us we do measure up to God’s standard. We are pleasing to Him. No longer do we need to strive and work to prove ourselves, only to collapse in frustration and failure. Now we can live in the reality of grace which bring peace and life.
