068 | Take Five: Does God Require Progress?

Welcome to episode 68 of The Grace Cafe Podcast. Let’s take five and talk about Jesus. We hear messages of moral improvement, behavior modification, and moral progress all around us all the time. The message of progress has replaced the message of the gospel. We’re told that God himself is measuring our progress and the more progress we make in doing the right things, the more pleased he is with us.

But that’s a lie. Here’s the truth: God requires perfection, not progress, so he gave us a Substitute, not a goal. Christian, you are complete in Him already, apart from what you do or don’t do. Pull up a chair. Let’s take five and talk about it.

066 | Take Five: Christ is the End of the Law

Hello friends! We’re starting something new at The Grace Cafe beginning with this episode. We’re going to start publishing short episodes between the regular weekly episodes that Susan and I do and this episode is the first one of those. Our hope is that these short monologues will serve as a middle-of-the-week reminder of who you are in Jesus and of the Father’s unending affection for you.

We’re calling these episodes Take Five. So let’s take five right now and talk about Jesus.
