Your weekly installment of 20 grace tweets from Scotty Smith:

A sign you’re growing in grace: The more you love theology (the study of God), the more you love people (those made in the image of God).

A sign you’re growing in grace: You can recognize sooner when your anger at some people has very little to do with them.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You don’t dump or stuff your anger as much. “Be angry & do not sin” makes sense. Eph. 4:26

A sign you’re growing in grace: The gospel of grace has freed you to tremble at God’s Word more than the law ever could.

A sign you’re growing in grace: When your heart affections for Jesus grow cool, you take that condition very seriously.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not as likely to second guess every decision or obsess about outcomes.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You don’t use as much “insider” religious verbiage or cliches when sharing your faith.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You spend less time liking or not liking pictures of yourself. Your vision is expanding.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not quite as vain as you used to be. It doesn’t take you as long to get “ready”.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not embarrassed to use the index to find Nahum, Obadiah & Philemon in your Bible.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re more grateful for the gifts God’s gave you than envious of the one’s he gave others.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You don’t get bored as quickly with other people or distracted in their presence.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not as hair-trigger sensitive as you used to be. You take stuff less personally.

A sign you’re growing in grace: It takes you less time to get unstuck from an angry funk, sulking mood or pity party.

A sign you’re growing in grace: Rejection hurts, but it drives you to Jesus more so than to anger, despair or revenge.

A sign you’re growing in grace: It’s been a while since anyone’s commented on your sarcasm and poor stewardship of humor.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’ve readjusted your expectations of people by the gospel. Some lower/some higher.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You don’t choose who’s call to return first primarily based on who can do the most for you.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You offer fewer generalizations like, “Oh those Calvinists” or Arminians/Charismatics/etc.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re a paradox. You are more settled in your theological position and more gracious towards those who differ wtih you.
