Grace is Sufficient
With the loss of another dear friend from Revolution, Jay needed time to grieve and process. So, for this week’s talk we have a special throwback. We have a talk from 2005! A younger, passionate Jay gives a talk at a festival–our guess is maybe Cornerstone. As with digging up anything that is nearly 20-years old, not everything Jay said back then lines up with who he is now, or what Revolution stands for now. As people change and grow, so does their understanding of life and people, the Bible and theology. But it is both amazing and comforting to be able to go back almost twenty years and see the constants in Jay’s message and what Revolution stands for. It stands for grace, and love. For being someone people can turn to and feel safe and know they will not be judged. For sticking around when others bail. For learning that grace is enough, there are no other strings attached. We are accepted and need to accept others and ourselves. These things have been a constant in Revolution–and still remain. The grace of God is sufficient–let’s accept it, and ourselves and each other. Because no one is perfect and no one is beyond the need of grace. Let’s accept it and love each other.
This talk was given in April 2005.
