Grace Is Not Cheap

pastor schoder wasnt sure

Pastor Schober wasn't sure whether buying the new crucifix from IKEA was such a good idea after all

Catriona posted this cartoon earlier in the week. Behind the levity is plenty to think about. It reminded me of something my Grandmother said to me.

“If I had been the only sinner on earth, Jesus would still have come and died on the cross for me. But I would have been the one who had to hammer in the nails”

And Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in ‘The Cost of Discipleship’

“Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.”


  1. Very thought-provoking - I can see that thought appearing in a sermon in years to come!

    Thank you for sharing x

  2. Grace without discipleship. There's a thought for the weekend...

  3. "What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered
    was all for sinner's gain.
    Mine, MINE was the transgression,
    but Thine the deadly pain."


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
