A conversation on Grace – The Gift and Walk {video interview}

One of the beautiful things about grace is that it is an amazing heavenly gift we receive, and a gift that’s to be included in our walk right here on earth. Every day, when I contemplate or am reminded of undeserved gift of grace – it astounds me – so much so, that I was compelled to ask two well-seasoned believers to expand on the essence of this gift and the call-to-action that springs forth from it.

The feature guests in this video-post share from a male and female perspective and lemme tell ya – this is deep y’all – rich with inspiration, and infused with compassion and integrity.

HFS Culture for Christ recently touched down in Barbados and held a series of enlightening events for the youth. I had a chance to sit with a guest of “Celebrate A Sister” series, an HFS Elevate ambassador Joanne, and TyKing in the lovely lobby of Barbados Beach Club Hotel

Prep a hot drink, pull up a chair, grab a pen and journal, and join in the conversation about grace.

Some power points:

Joanne

“You naturally wanna find grace…but giving it is a little more difficult…we’re all kind of looking for people to be kind to us – we’re looking for people to be accepting and caring…but really and truly what God is asking us to do is be those grace-agents to other people…and finding a way to love first…

It’s your grace; it’s your beauty and you have to wear it well. You get up to love on people, starting with loving on your God.”

Ty King

“One re-occurring theme is men understanding that grace is available…a man is not told to cry, or a man is not told to talk about some of the things that they struggle with – they wanna keep those things inside internally and not share it with others, and in that sense it’s like having a car with a broken engine…and the car looks good on the outside yet it’s broken but you don’t wanna tell anybody that you need a mechanic or you don’t wanna ask anybody what’s the best mechanic to go to…

I believe that God is calling us to be in a place where we can come to Him exposing our weaknesses – say – ‘these are my shortcomings’ and God’s saying I have enough grace to support you in your shortcomings, but also to make you stronger.”
