Paul praised the church in Colossae for knowing the grace of God in truth (Colossians 1:6). How we need this today. Today many want to teach that we can abide in sin and still be under grace despite Paul's words in Romans 6:1-2. Titus 2:12 teaches that the grace of God does not give us license to sin as we want but the grace of God teaches us to be godly in this present age.
We need to revisit grace and understand it. Thankfully, Dr. Oden has given the church this book. This work focuses on the doctrine of God's grace. Oden shows not just how God saves us by His grace but how grace empowers us toward godliness. This is an excellent and readable work on grace. I do highly recommend it.
