Active Spirituality Includes Grace & Effort

In Active Spirituality, Brian Hedges allows us to read someone else’s mail — a series of warm pastoral letters, written to a young Christian, about the paradox of grace and effort in the life of faith.

“Is my Christian life about trying or trusting?” • “Would I describe my relationship to God as running or resting?” • “Is my life more characterized by grace or effort?”

The wisdom in the letters makes clear that it is both: trying and trusting, running and resting, dependence on grace and exerting disciplined effort. This balance is not about getting my doctrine right, but is key to living a healthy Christian life.

So, pull up a chair, settle in, and read over the shoulder of Chris, a struggling young adult trying to find a church, overcome discouragement, live a chaste life, and develop a plan for spiritual growth, all while learning to rest in the finished work of Jesus.

My guest on the program today will be Brian Hedges - pastor at Fulkerson Park Baptist Church in Niles, Michigan. Brian is also the author of the books, Christ Formed In You and License To Kill.
