Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Faith is only faith in deeds of obedience.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer, ‘Discipleship

I grasp this… Jesus, Paul, and James shouted it from the rafters. The Bible clearly teaches it. Dietrich Bonhoeffer lived it. So what’s wrong with me? Have I fallen prey to a grace-is-just-for-breakfast type of faith?

The author over at Two Minutes of Grace challenges me (and you) to take a gander at my (and your) excitement gauge… the one that measures my (and your) passion for the grace God has bestowed upon me (and you).

Do we really live as though the gospel of Jesus Christ is good news… or just okay news? Stop for a coffee break and enjoy a slice of rhubarb pie here. After all, I did steal her picture.

  1. First I want to thank you for your posting as a result I have a blog that I am intrigued with finding out more.

    I wanted to use this image for my own blog on a similar blog.
    If that is something I should not do please contact me about removing it. As I am not sure who to ask about using it. Thank you.

    Please search the blog titled if you wish to see what is written.
    Obedient Blessing is better than Disobedient Grace
    I am not linking to it because I have not quite posted the blog it should be done in a few minutes.

    What a great post! Sometimes some of God’s biggest messags can be wrapped up in the simplest packages.
