God Does Not Grade On A Curve

This truth is to the praise of the glorious grace of God:

“Growing in the gospel means seeing more of God’s holiness and more of my sin. And because of what Jesus has done for us on the cross, we need not fear seeing God as he really is or admitting how broken we really are. Our hope is not in our own goodness, nor in the vain expectation that God will compromise his standards and ‘grade on a curve.’ Rather, we rest in Jesus as our perfect Redeemer — the One who is ‘our righteousness, holiness and redemption’ (1 Cor. 1:30).”

– Bob Thune and Will Walker, The Gospel-Centered Life (World Harvest Mission, 2009), 6.
