Grace is an inflated raft that can submerge to the floor of a sea to save you.

 Grace is the silver thread that stitches up the shreds of mangled souls.

 Grace is the eye that finds us where it refuses, there, to leave us.

 Grace calls the waitress to the table and sits her down to wash her feet.

 Grace sees underneath the manhole on a street of self-destruction.

 Grace is the air to draw a breath in the belly of a whale.

 Grace is the courage to stand in the shamed wake of a frightful falling.

 Grace is the only fire hot enough to burn down a living hell.

 Grace waits with healing in His wings when we’re too mad to pray.

 Grace is the gravity that pulls us from depravity.

 Grace races us to the Throne when we make haste to repent and always outruns us.

 Grace treats us like we already are what we fear we’ll never become.

 Grace is the doorpost dripping red when the angel of death grips the knob.

 Grace is the stamp that says Ransomed on a life that screams Ruined.

 Grace sets a table before me in the presence of my enemy even when my enemy is me.

 Grace is the cloak that covers the naked and the palm that drops the rock.

 Grace is divine power burgeoning in the absence of all strength.

 Grace proves God true and every self-made man a liar for the sake of his own soul.

 Grace is the power to do what we cannot do for the Name of Christ to go where it has not been.

Grace is a room of a thousand mirrors, all reflecting the face of Christ.

Grace is…

The eye popping

Knee dropping


Earth quaking

Pride breaking


Dark stabbing

Heart grabbing


Friend mending

Mind bending


Lame walking

Mute talking


Slave freeing

Devil fleeing


Death tolling

Stone rolling


Veil tearing

Glory flaring


Chin lifting

Sin sifting


Dirt bleaching

World reaching


Past covering

Spirit hovering


Child defending

Happy ending


Heaven glancing

Feet dancing…


Power of the Cross.



Jesus Christ, Grace Incarnate.

    Grace is a gift beyond our understanding. Through these words Beth brought grace to life. I could almost see grace Dancing and singing before me. Thank you Beth for allowing the Spirit to work through you and reach me with this message.

    As one who was tweeting and facebooking, and emailing, and blog post commenting every where I could to request this… thank you!

    I live in PA and attended the Live event in West Virginia on Saturday; so powerful. God was in that arena… and all over the world. He breathed his grace on me right there in my seat.

    Thank you for what you do.

    Be blessed,

    Thanks for placing this on the blog. I wanted a copy to share with some friends. The simulcast was awesome. I viewed it solo but as soon as I signed on that morning before it even started the Presence of God filled my office in such a powerful way I knew God was going to meet me in a powerful way and He did. Thanks to Lifeway for being able to view it for 30 days so I can listen again and fill in some more of my notes.

    I can’t help but read this post over and over. The way you make the concet of grace come alive through these words is so beautiful and humbling, and it brings such peace and stillness to my busy mind.

    Kari says:

    YES! I was going to write in and ask for this! I love it–oh Beth, we were in tears in the sanctuary listening in, in Denver. Those words are just simply life giving. Every single one a truth that we could just contemplate all day. Posting this in my apartment..and in my cube at work!

    you have been gifted by our Lord to do exactly what you are doing. I have only been around for the last 5 years of your ministry, but hope to see you through the next 15 🙂 many many many blessings to you.

    I had the honor of seeing you live in Charleston and I also heard from God loud and clear that I NO LONGER have to carry that dead woman around. Please Beth pray about putting all of what you taught in a book or dvd or something so I can purchase. Plus I know so many others that want it to.. Thank you so much for your ministry this is not the first time that God has worked through your ministry in my life. Love you sweet sister in Christ.

    It is in His hands, hidden
    It is His acceptable time, reserved
    It is His inheritance, preserved
    It is His strength, delivered
    It is His cross, redeemed
    It is His spirit, comforted
    It is His healing, righteousness. ~joyce
    Thank you for sharing these beautiful words on Grace!
    It is good to hear of God’s greatness, His power and His love toward us. Thank you so much, Beth!<3

    Such a beautiful, visual post. Thank you for painting us picture of grace today – one that we can close our eyes and see so clearly. Grace is all He’s doing for my weary heart. Thanks for your words. I’m currently going through your Patriarch’s study and it is wrecking me in all the good ways. 🙂

    Beth and Team, I loved the simulcast on Saturday,(as did everyone I spoke with at our church). Thank you All for such an awesome day. Beth, you are a wonderful teacher. We are all blessed to have your teachings!

    christina says:

    Yes! Thank you!

    My favorites today are
    Grace races us to the Throne when we make haste to repent and always outruns us.

    Grace treats us like we already are what we fear we’ll never become.

    Grace sets a table before me in the presence of my enemy even when my enemy is me.

    Grace is divine power burgeoning in the absence of all strength.

    Kathy says:

    Thank you from myself and about half dozen of my friends. Wish you could hear how this list and Saturday has affected our lives- guess you will have to wait till Heaven. I had prayed that each person attending would receive
    through Beth the Word they needed from the Lord. Everyone I have spoken to affirmed that was the case and that this was the best similcast ever!! Amen and Thank You again.

  28. 228

    Grace (karis) also means breath of God and comes from the word for Christ. So grace is not just forgiveness but it is the life of Christ in us! How could it get any better than that??

    LisaS says:

    This brought tears to my eyes & a smile in my heart as you read it. Simulcast was wonderful.

    I choose to bask in that Grace today! Thank you for this beautiful reminder of what and Who grace is.

    Someone needs to put this to music!!!!!!!!!!

  32. 232
    Sandra Schuster says:

    I have continued to process the lessons I learned on Saturday at the Simulcast about living under grace and not the law. (I loved the day, by the way.) I came across a couple of statements in David Guzik’s commentary on 1 Thes. 5:18 that helped make it even more clear to me. These are my modified version of the statements: The law says, “This is God’s will, you must do it!” Grace says, “This is God’s will so you can do it!” Praise God for the privilege of being able to obey his will!!

      Hi Michelle, they do not always release LPL’s to the public, and if they do, it is a process. However, LifeWay is offering it for a month where you can still go online and view it. I hope that helps! And if it is ever released, we’ll certainly let y’all know. Blessings!

    Tracie says:

    Beth, I can honestly say, your teaching on grace this weekend was one of the most serious, most important Words the Lord has spoken over my life. I am SO grateful because it was life changing for me. Is there any way a DVD could be purchased of this teaching?

  36. 236
    Diane Rogers says:

    Hi Sisters in Christ – Any of you reading this, please pray for me. I’m 50 years old and am getting ready to embark on a dream of being a teacher. I’ve been in real estate for over 25 years but I know my calling is to teach. I’m meeting with a second a representative at Azusa Pacific today. I met with someone at Pt. Loma Nazarine University about two months ago. I will have to pursue my further education while working full time. My dream is to go to a Christian University. Any prayers are greatly appreciated. Father God, I pray the Holy Spirit guides my steps. Thank you for blessing me so greatly in my life. Amen

    No longer under the law but living in grace!

    Grace grabbed me long ago with his strong fingers, pulling my heart out and replacing with his. I can’t thank you enough for your thoughts on grace. Something I’d like to read daily.

    Oh Beth Sept. 14 was by the grace of God AWSOME my sisters and I attended this event what a blessing come down from heaven I’ll never be the same thank you Beth and your team God has truly blessed you all. Will be praying for your team God bless and keep you in his loving arms.

    Glenda says:

    This is absolutely beautiful! It spoke to my heart and brought tears of joy to my eyes. I read this at a very dark time in my life and it so lifted my spirits. You are always such an encourager, with your books, Bible studies and poetry. You are truly annointed. In 2 weeks’ time, I have been diagnosed with cancer and my son and his wife have filed for divorce, with all the nastiness that can include. I have not gotten to see my precious granddaughter for a month now. I can handle the cancer, but my heart breaks from not seeing my sweet Maddie. Thank you, Beth, for lifting my spirits. Glenda

    Shelly says:

    Thank you! Last year the simulcast message hit straight home for me. You mentioned that this was a follow up lesson for that and this one hit the mark for me as well. Now just to go live a grace-filled life. It is certainly easier to do with some people than others! Thank you for being faithful again to do what God called you to do!

    Julie Gudwer says:

    The pop up quiz Beth gave us during NC Simulcast meant alot to me. I am wondering if there is a copy of it so I know what anwers I gave go to what question Beth asked. Thanks so much!

    oops! I think from Simulcast in West Virgina

    Beth so miss hearing from YOU.

    Nancy says:

    Changed by this simulcast! Thank you, Beth and team. When I first heard the word “Grace” last week, I thought this was going to be on how we need to extend grace to others, which we do. How powerful it was to hear how God first extends His grace to us. Life changing and a message that needs to be heard. So hoping Lifeway will offer this in DVD form! And soon!! 🙂

    Kelly says:

    Hi I watched the simulcast Sept 14th from Holdrege Nebraska First Baptist Church! It was absolutely amazing!!!:) I accepted Christ as my personal savior on that day. I would really like a copy of the prayer that we used to commemorate the day. Thank you so much! Kelly Dossett
    No longer the same!

    Thank you for posting this beautiful description/picture of “Grace”. It is encouraging to read. I find myself re-reading it. I, too, pray this simulcast will be available on DVD soon. What a blessing! Praising God for pouring out His Holy Spirit on you, Beth; and your faithful obedience. For His Glory…

    Grace is the power and the desire to do the will of God. That is what I heard Bill Gothard say once. Sounds good to me!
