From the Pure Grace Conference team:
We are excited that Dr. Steve McVey, President of Grace Walk Ministries, will be a featured speaker during the 2014 Pure Grace Conference. He is the author of the best-selling book, Grace Walk, as well as eleven other books. His daily radio broadcast, Grace Walk, can be heard in cities across the United States. McVey travels extensively sharing the good news of our Father’s love for all mankind. Register Today!
It was the revelation of grace, the it-is-finished work of Christ, that gave me the vision for this new ministry endeavor. Grace is all about understanding we cannot add to what Jesus did for us and nothing we can do will change who we are in Him. This conference isn’t about sex and sexuality–frankly, those narrow topics matter little in the grand scheme of things. Learning about God through the filter of “He is Good” does matter and it will change everything when you do.
I hope you will join me, Emcee of the Pure Grace: Unveiled Conference, February 27 – March 1, 2014 in warm, sunny, gracious Orlando!
The world is fraught with bad news. It has been since the beginning and will be until the end. Ironically, after however many thousands or millions of years (depending on your theology, or lack thereof) humans are still surprised wars continue to happen, that people die, and senselessly bad things happen to really good people. We don’t expect this reality. Maybe because God didn’t create the world or its inhabitants to experience the decay that has been unstoppable since Adam and Eve fell in the garden. Our expectations match what was to be our original perfect reality and not what became our actual reality post fall.
Andy Crouch, prolific author, speaker, and Executive Editor of Christianity Today, says it like this,
Andy’s point is that even the Church, the entity Pastor Bill Hybels calls the hope of the world, has succumbed to this grim, joyless, and visionless existence. As Believers we live like the rest of humanity, in shame and defeat, with a poor image of God the Father, Redeemer, Creator, Author, and Finisher. And, we become a poor reflection of Him.
