Here are a few things from the book I will share, though there was a lot I would love to share but I recommend getting the book and reading it.
"Everything in our world demands two-way love." God's love is one way love. He doesn't require that we do anything in exchange for His love and that is what real grace is.
A moment of grace can change a person in a way that a lifetime of punishment never could.
"If the Law is the first word, Grace is the last. The Law diagnoses, but Grace delivers. The Law accuses, Grace acquits. The Law condemns the best of us, while Grace saves the worst of us. The Law says "cursed, Grace says "blessed." The Law says "slave, Grace says "son. The Law says "guilty, Grace says "forgiven. The Law can break a hard heart, but only Grace can heal one." Tchividjian used the story of Jean Valjean from Les Miserables to explain this. If you haven't see that play/movie well that is a must.
The world we live in tells us we are not nothing if we don't have this or we don't have that or we are not successful, or haven't accomplished this or that. Near the end of the book this sums it up perfectly. "If you're a Christian, here's the good news: Who you really are has nothing to do with you-how much you can accomplish, who you can become, your behavior (good or bad), your strengths, your weakness, your sordid past, your family background, your education, your looks, and so on. Your identity is firmly anchored in Christ's accomplishment, not yours: His strength, not yours; His performance, not yours; His victory, not yours. Your identity is steadfastly established in His substitution, not your sin."
