What If Grace Is Contagious

This social experiment may just tickle your funny bone! But sadly it’s also how a lot of believers treat their Christianity…

So many of the things we say and do as “good Christians” are because of religious norms or societal expectations. But how often do we consider the “why” behind all of those traditions and expectations?

Whether you’re from a legalistic background or not, you’ve undoubtedly run into the group mindset before. And maybe you’ve seen aspects of this mindset creep into your own life too.

But what if…

  • instead of conforming to rules and regulations en masse, we shone brightly as trend setters?
  • we made freedom in grace the new normal?
  • you and I lived so beautifully free that the people around us were dying to try it too?

The girl in the video confessed, “When I saw everybody stand up I felt like I needed to join them, otherwise I’m, like, excluded. Once I decided to go with it, then I felt much more comfortable.”

So, why not show a duty-filled, tired Christian world that life is a beautiful, full adventure in grace?

truth is grace changes everything

Now that’s a trend worth following.

P.S. If you want to delve deeper into how grace reframes the Christian life, check out my book, Grace Changes Everything: How to Be Enough in a Do-More World. Believe me, the true story is an astounding one!

I loved this video. It was almost unbelievable that it was happening that way. Sorry to say I think I would have been the non-conformist in that room–’cause I am always asking “Now, why are we doing this?” I was brought up to ask those types of questions. 🙂
