Are you familiar with the concept of karma? Good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. Grace is undeserved favor, getting good things you didn’t deserve. Doesn’t that sound like a better deal than karma? Yet if you mention the two terms anywhere other than in a church you can expect a more favorable response for karma. The Biblical term for this is righteousness by works of the law. Why is grace offensive? There is something in human nature that wants to be deserving, that wants a reward for effort. A free gift seems too good to be true. But to accept it is to forever acknowledge dependence and the end of self-improvement projects by your own effort. The death that this involves is the only way to eternal life.
