Eric Mason speaking at WiBO

The notes below are from www.thewhiteboardsessions.com and a message shared there:

We often reduce grace to what we think.  We often reduce love in terms of simply giving.

Romans 1:15-17 --- Paul used a negative to talk about a positive by saying he was "not ashamed"
Hebrews 12:2 --- Jesus despised the shame
More references: Colossians 2:13-15, Romans 10:16, 15:10, 16:25

According the the Gospel it SAVES lost people and TRANSFORMS saved people.

Even the disciple struggled with keeping the Gospel central in their lives. (Eric told a story of how this might of went down from Galatians 3.)

Romans 8:29 --- we are destined to look like Christ.  That is from God.
Colossians 1:29 --- we continue to strive or struggle with our enemy.

(I was impressed and touched by Eric's message in a big way.  Looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.)
