An overview of each session
Session 1 | Free!
We all know that we are saved by grace through faith alone. Yet when it comes to living out our Christian lives, it’s easy to default to obeying a set of rules or living up to certain standards. But God is not looking for slaves who obey because they have to. He wants to free us to rest in His grace so that we serve Him because we really want to.
Session 2 | Innocent!
Many of God’s people struggle with a low-grade fever of guilt which makes us “act like we think a Christian should act”. Understanding that we have been declared not guilty once and for all brings us back to a real relationship with God where we can be ourselves and do what we do purely out of love. In Christ we measure up in full to God’s righteous demands!
Session 3 | Unashamed!
Past experiences, what others say and our struggles to break free of sin can leave us feeling that there is something fundamentally wrong with us. The truth is that we have become completely new people who can break the cycle of returning time and again to the same old sin issue. In Christ we have become completely new creations at the core of our being!
Session 4 | Courageous!
Our God is an awesome God. But His children can come boldly into His presence without being afraid — we are absolutely secure and safe. And if this God is for us, who can be against us? We need fear no one and nothing except God Himself, and the fear of God is not a cringing mistrust but a deep awe of His great majesty and holiness.
Session 5 | Humble!
In the Old Testament, God gave His people the Law. When Jesus came, He stated plainly that He had not come to do away with the Law but to fulfil it. If we understand how this works, we will resist the temptation to set ourselves up as nit-picking “guardians of the truth” but will be guided by the Law that is now written on our hearts. We will humble ourselves before God and before each other.
Steps To Experiencing God's Grace
A kind and gentle ministry session that will help you deal with the things that get in the way of experiencing God’s grace. It is designed to be run on an “away day” retreat between Sessions 5 and 6 or in an individual one-on-one appointment.
Session 6 | Fruitful!
When we feel ground down and exhausted, Jesus makes us an astonishing offer: a light yoke and an easy burden. And He really means it! It seems a paradox, but genuinely fruitful ministry that will have value for eternity comes only when we enter into that rest through the gateway of brokenness and learn to depend completely on Him.
Several times during The Grace Course there was the sheer joy of lights being suddenly switched on, and I myself gained many fresh insights into God’s amazing love in Christ. Be prepared for life-changing encounters with God and experience how Bible passages as familiar as the story of the Lost Son can speak in powerful new ways. A truly compelling course.
Revd. Charles McMullen, West Church (Presbyterian)
This empowering material is accessible to those in the very early stages of pursuing life with Christ and yet highly stimulating and challenging for mature believers. I highly recommend it as a key discipleship tool for the whole church. It makes fabulous home group material and is ideal for every discipleship team.
Lynn Chetcuti, Welcome Pastor Brookside Church
The Grace Course deepened people’s sense of identity in Christ and stirred them up to greater love and faithfulness from a point of grace — not obligation or legalism. It spoke powerfully to people in our church from many ethnic backgrounds and life situations. We recommend it highly.
