No matter how messed up sin has made you, God’s grace is greater than your sin. This is the central idea behind Grace Is Greater: God’s Plan to Overcome Your Past, Redeem Your Pain, and Rewrite Your Story by Kyle Idleman published Baker Publishing Group. In Grace is Greater, Idleman describes how in God’s Word, we see that God’s grace is incomparable to how wrecked our sin seems to us.
Idleman argues this Biblical view by breaking down this chief doctrine into four very practical ideas, that all Christians can apply to their lives. These three sections are, God’s grace is greater than, your mistakes, your hurts, your circumstances. Each of these sections demonstrate that God’s love demonstrated by though His grace will trump anything that we are going through, big or small nothing is insurmountable to the love of God.
Idleman spends many pages repeating himself with this message, which while it can never be understated can be too much of a focus if our need to follow the law does not come into focus. Therefore while Idleman’s magnificent attempt for exploring this important doctrine should be applauded he unfortunately focuses too much on God’s love for man and not enough on man’s duty to God to glorify and enjoy Him by following His law focusing on Him rather than ourselves, seeing every life experience we have, good or bad as an opportunity to glorify God.
