Costly Grace

There is nothing cheap about it . . .

“Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves.

Cheap grace is
  • the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance,
  • baptism without church discipline,
  • Communion without confession….

Cheap grace is

  • grace without discipleship,
  • grace without the cross,
  • grcae without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.”

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer (The Cost of Discipleship)

Concerning the picture, Pastor and Blogger - and Bonhoeffer expert (bonhoefferblog) - Brian Galloway writes: "I am assuming that Bonhoeffer’s Cafe was named after Dietrich Bonhoeffer."
