Grace and Karma

My sister just shared a link on Facebook that I am totally impressed by…not that she shared it but that it so apply describes something my Bible class was discussing this morning.

We had, as part of our study of Christ, a discussion on “what do you see when you look up at the cross?”. Someone mentioned that what happened on the cross forgives us our sins. I mentioned that sins, in particular, my sins, are what put Christ on the cross.

The article I am posting a link to at the bottom of this posting is on Bono, of the band, U2. He is discussing the difference between Grace and Karma.

This really stood out to me:

The point of the death of Christ is that Christ took on the sins of the world so that what we put out did not come back to us, and that our sinful nature does not reap the obvious death. That’s the point. It should keep us humbled….its not our own good works that get through the gates of heaven…

Christ died for me. And you. And you, and you, and you…..

By grace we are saved. So that the bad stuff doesn’t come back to us.

Here is the article:
