Full of Grace and Truth

The Nines Conference 2014


When it comes to grace and truth, most Christians tend to emphasize one over the other in practice, especially when addressing the subject of homosexuality. In this 4-minute session from The Nines Conference 2014, Pete Briscoe, Senior Pastor of Bent Tree Bible Fellowship in Plano, Texas, encourages us to look for our direction in the example of Jesus Christ who came into the world full of both grace and truth (John 1:14).

Because we follow Jesus Christ, the ways in which we respond to homosexuality should reflect His example. If our desire is to engage the gay community faithfully, then we are called to be full of both grace and truth, which is possible only by the power of the Holy Spirit. As you think about grace and truth, take some time to consider whether you tend to emphasize one over the other. Ask God to change you in such a way that you live full of both.
