Grace is like a roller coaster

Grace is like a roller coaster

Grace is a bit like a roller coaster; it makes us scream in terror and laugh uncontrollably at the same time.

But there aren’t any harnesses on this ride. We are not in the driver’s seat, and we did not design the twists and turns. We just get on board. We laugh as the binding law of gravity is suspended, and we scream because it looks like we’re going to hurtle off into space.

Grace brings us back into contact with the children we once were (and still are)—children who loved to ride roller coasters, to smile and yell and throw our hands up in the air.

Grace, in other words, is terrifyingly fun, and like any ride worth standing in line for, it is worth coming back to again and again. In fact, God’s one-way love may be the only ride that never gets old, the only ride we thankfully never outgrow. A source of inexhaustible hope and joy for an exhausted world.”

    Well said Lisa! Grace is indeed a roller coaster. It’s like what Paul says: we are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, and yet it is God who is the one who works in us for His good pleasure.
