Grace Is Enough, Jesus Is Enough

My message, unchanged for more than fifty years, is this: God loves unconditionally, as you are and not as you should be, because nobody is as they should be. It is the message of grace…A grace that pays the eager beaver who works all day long the same wages as the grinning drink who shows up at ten till five.  A grace that hikes up the robe and runs breakneck toward the prodigal reeking of sin and wraps him up and decides to throw a party no ifs, ands, or buts…

This vulgar grace is indiscriminate compassion.  It works without asking anything of us…Grace is sufficient even though we huff and puff with all our might to try to find something or someone it cannot cover.  Grace is enough…Jesus is enough.
