GraciaHablamos como si entendiéramos el término. El banco nos da un periodo de gracia. El político sórdido cae en desgracia. Los músicos hablan de una nota ornamental. Decimos que una bailarina se mueve con gracia y que un payaso que tiene gracia es gracioso. Usamos esta palabra para hospitales y como nombre de pila para las niñas, con ella nos referimos a los reyes, y damos gracias antes de comer. Hablamos como si supiéramos lo que significa la gracia.El exitoso autor, Max Lucado, dice que nos conformamos con una gracia cualquiera, una gracia que es como un pez dorado que se queda en su pecera sobre el estante y nunca causa problemas ni demanda atención. Gracia significa mucho más de lo que pensamos, y en su nuevo libro Lucado comparte las verdades de este mensaje fundamental de su ministerio. El autor desafía a los lectores no solo a recibir la gracia, sino a ser cambiados por la gracia. Moldeados por la gracia. Fortalecidos por la gracia. Animados por la gra…

PDF The Treasure Box By Penelope Stokes
Vita Kirk is a travel writer who has never left her hometown. In fact, she rarely leaves her house. Due to deep wounds and bitter losses, Vita has chosen isolation over vulnerability. But when she stumbles across an antique chest in a hole-in-the-wall boutique, she discovers a puzzling link to her past And her physical surroundings mysteriously begin to change. Inscribed in the treasure chest are the words, "Love is the key that unlocks every portal." The power of these words prove to unlock a part of Vita she thought had died years ago. "Stories like this go by many different names-fantasy, time-shift, magical realism. Some are overtly Christian or religious in nature, others are not. But from a spiritual perspective, the common thread in all these works is the redeeming, transforming power of God's grace not only to alter the future but to change our understanding of the past."--Penelope Stoke
