A Commitment to Speak GraceA Commitment to Speak Grace – Make sure you have your sermon application guide titled “A Commitment to Speak Grace” (extras are available at the welcome desk or Sunday School classrooms). Then do this: (1) Several times each week, read through this card; (2) Ask the Lord to identify any ways in which you need to take action; (3) Use confession, forgiveness, teachability, or exhortation as God prompts you; (4) Once you have acted on what God has prompted you to do, write the date and a one or two sentence summary of what you did on the back of this card; (5) Hang on to your card and keep using it. As you do these five things, you will grow in your ability to give grace to those who hear (Ephesians 4:29). Way to make the sermons live in your actions!
