If you don’t first know God’s love for you in your heart – not just your head – it’s impossible for your life to be motivated by love for Him. Instead you are likely to end up motivated more by guilt or shame or fear or pride. You may be doing all the “right” things, believing all the right things and saying all the right things but there will be precious little fruit and you won’t experience the true rest that Jesus promised.
The Grace Course is a tool for churches to help Christians recover their first love for God so that they go on to love others and make a great impact on the world. Its objective is to enable Christians to experience God’s grace in such a deep and real way that love for Him becomes the main motivator in their lives.
It teaches the wonderful truths of grace but has an emphasis on helping people experience that grace. There are practical exercises, times of listening to God and a gentle ministry component, The Steps To Experiencing God’s Grace.
The Grace Course consists of six teaching sessions and a ministry component that comes between Sessions 5 and 6. You can present the teaching yourself using the Leader’s Guide which comes with a powerpoint presentation CD or you can use video presentations available on DVD presented by Steve Goss. There are Participant’s Guides with notes for each session which also include the ministry component ‘Steps to Experiencing God’s Grace’.
