How Do Ambulances & Warning Signs Relate to Showing Jesus?

They show the need for both grace & truth in outreach

In Randy Alcorn’s book “The Grace & Truth Paradox,” he says:

  • Grace is quick to post ambulances and paramedics at the bottom of the cliff. But without truth, it fails to post warning signs and build guardrails.

 

  • Truth is quick to post warning signs and guardrails at the top of the cliff. Yet it fails to empower people to drive safely - and neglects to help them when they crash.

  • Grace and truth are both necessary. Neither is sufficient. We show people Jesus only when we show them grace and truth.
