Hey everyone. So this is the second discussion on the core values of the Brethren in Christ. This week we actually had a games night, which was awesome, so I figured that on the blog we could discuss the core value which was actually missed. So it would have been a couple weeks ago now that we talked about what is actually the first core value of the B.I.C, which reads like this. “We value the free gift of salvation in Christ Jesus and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.” During the meeting we talked about how Jesus offers salvation (life with him now, and life in heaven) through grace, (a free gift made possible through his sacrifice). This is a value which runs through just about every denomination of the Christian Church. But here’s some questions I want to ask you guys.
1) How does the “transforming power of the holy spirit” have anything to do with grace?
2) How do you think the Christian church does at what I call “living out grace?”
