Narrative of Grace

Scripture Reading:

St. John 3:1-21
The Gospel is Good News because it is a narrative of grace custom fit for each individual. None of us are cast in another’s mold; Jesus comes and interacts with my story. If he finds me cooperative and compliant, over time I start to look like him. Christianity is never forceful, but it is not passive. Christ refuses to push the issue against my will; he bends instead of breaks.
“Christ was crucified because he would have nothing to do with the crowd (even though he addressed himself to all). He did not want to form a party, an interest group, or a mass movement, but wanted to be what he was, the truth, which is related to the single individual.”       
 ~Søren Kierkegaard, Provocations
