Cheap Grace

In every church there are people who practice “cheap grace”.

What is cheap grace? It is a “salvation experience” where someone might have recited a prayer at some point in their life, and that is all.

You may still go to church; you may go more than once a week.

You might even serve on the occasional committee; but there is no fruit and there is no life change.

Cheap grace…cheapening the salvation of Christ that you claim to have received.

How can you tell if you have cheap grace?

Look at your life.

• Has it been changed?

• Is it different from what it was before you “prayed the prayer”?

• Is it different than those outside the church?

• Are you being changed from the inside out by the power of God’s Spirit who is in you?
