Because our salvation - past, present, and future - is a gift from God, we do not approach biblical commands as an external code of behavior. Rather, God's grace works in our lives to create an atmosphere of holiness and love that emerge from within.
Shaped by Grace
The transforming work of the Gospel shapes our hearts and minds. When applied to both the mundane and profound details of our lives, it should cause us to be different from unbelievers around us. But what does this look like practically? How do these distinctions show themselves each day in our families, work, and local churches?
