United Methodist Beliefs: Prevenient Grace

Posted By on August 13, 2019

♪ (music) ♪ (Gary Henderson) Prevenient
Grace is a really large term but to keep it simple, it
is ‘grace before we knew we needed it.’ Grace reaches out to us. It is God’s provision for us
before we knew it and before we were aware of it. I have this image of the circus
and the trapeze artists, and they’re doing these
incredible things way up high and it’s dangerous. Life is like that. Sometimes they begin to fall and
there’s a net there. Sometimes it’s people,
we begin to fall. And through prevenience, we
have a net available to us. Grace is everywhere. We are caught up in the net of
God’s care. John Wesley understood
this grace. It is this grace that was so
compelling for John Wesley that he shared with the whole world,
and it reaches out to us today. ♪ (music) ♪
