What is human life for? Just to live a few years and then go into nothingness? Or is it to live forever? Even if we could live forever, would we want to live the way we are now, or do we want a better life? The Bible says that we were made in the image of God, and that Jesus is the image of God, and we are being made like him. We can't do it, but God can do it in us.

Almost 2,000 years ago, a Jewish carpenter began to preach. He was popular with some people, but he made others angry. Officials said he was a threat to national security, and they arranged for his death. His only weapon was his message. The crowds liked it, but “good” people didn’t. He said it was about love—so why did anyone hate it? What was the message that got Jesus killed? Do we need it now?

God isn't fair, and that's a good thing, says Joseph Tkach, president of Grace Communion International. If we received what was "fair," we would not like the results! But God gives us grace instead, and that changes everything. It is good news for us, and it changes our life for the good.

Guilt is so thoroughly engrained in religious culture that many people cannot imagine the gospel without a focus on guilt. They present the gospel as a transaction: you will be forgiven IF you accept the gospel. But Jesus already paid for your sins and you are already forgiven. There is no IF. Sin is forgiven, but it still messes up relationships. The gospel needs to focus on our relationships.

Does God put conditions on his grace - that we have to do something in order to be forgiven? If we have to do something, is it really a gift? If grace is given without conditions, does it mean that it's OK to sin? If God no longer counts our sins against us, then what's wrong with sin? Grace leads to a number of questions, and these articles attempt to clarify what grace is, and how we receive it.
