There are several reasons why I’m on Twitter, not the least of which is the numerous gospel tweets from men like Scotty Smith, Tullian Tchividjian, and Paul Tripp. Yesterday, I took some time to compile all of Paul Tripp’s tweets on the subject of “grace” in one document. Several people have asked me to share this, which I am glad to do. Here’s a small sampling of the hundreds of tweets by Tripp on grace:
The unrelenting power of transforming grace is greater than the unyielding idolatry of your wondering heart.
Jesus did for you what you couldn’t do, so that you could give to him what you couldn’t give apart from his grace-your whole heart.
Face it, you and I don’t need to be tweaked, you tweak a poorly written sentence, you and I need to be radically rebuilt by grace.
Grace frees you from the weight of the law, not so you would despise the law, but so you would use the resources of grace to keep it.
Grace frees you to live horizontally what you’ve given vertically. While others hope to get, you can celebrate what you’ve been given.
Grace calls you to abandon your reliance on you because God knows that true righteousness only begins when you come to the end of yourself.
Grace: No love greater, no forgiveness more complete, no hope more secure, no peace more permanent than are found in Jesus.
Grace tells you all the things about you that you don’t want to face, while assuring you that they have all been covered by the cross.
Grace doesn’t excuse your sin, rather it pays the price for what is inexcusable.
Grace means you don’t have to hide what’s already been forgiven, or fear what’s already been defeated, or earn what’s already been given.
I encourage you to download this document and use these tweets to preach the gospel to yourself. We need to be strengthened by the grace that is in Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 2:1), and God has been gracious to give us a brother like Tripp to help us understand, appreciate, appropriate, and celebrate God’s sweet and sovereign grace.
Rest in it.
