"Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate."
"Costly grace is the treasure hidden in the field; for the sake of it a man will gladly go and sell all that he has…Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought…”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German pastor who spoke against the evil policies of Hitler during World War II. And he paid with his life.
Like the man in Matthew 13:44 who sold everything he had to buy the treasure in the field, Bonhoeffer understood the value of grace.
Sometimes I spend my heart on “treasures” of the world with little left for God…cheap grace.
Grace cost Christ and many of His followers their lives. Will you join me today as I seek to be more aware and grateful for the extravagant gift of grace?
