Grace-Based Well-Being

Updated: Apr 25

There is one perfect path to well-being, and it is centered on truth and grace.

Perhaps the circumstances you find yourself in today have never been more challenging. We all long for happiness, rest, security, and overall well-being. We want well-being for ourselves, and also for everyone we care about.

Each day, we are bombarded with a multitude of ideas on what will give us well-being. Usually, the message is: this is what you must know, do, or buy to finally be well.

And yet, none of these methods for well-being live up to their promises. They more often tend to exhaust us in the process. What we really need is... something that will take the pressure off. How about a shift in managing our well-being from us, to something (or Someone) more powerful than us?

That is exactly what God's grace (through Jesus) offers. It is the one perfect theory of well-being.

Grace-based Well-being

  • It requires no money (completely independent from finances)

  • It reduces fear and eliminates unnecessary suffering

  • It transforms all suffering into positive growth (i.e. post-traumatic growth)

  • It increases self-control, happiness, joy, peace, and more...

  • It empowers healthy thought and behavior

  • It produces well-being that goes deep below the surface (forget about the glossy well-being portrayed on social media)

  • It gives us permission to be messy, clumsy humans- and yet unique and valuable by design

  • It creates a perfect, complete identity (bigger and better than identities based on sexual preference, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education, family roles, etc.)

  • It automatically provides a community of love, belonging, and acceptance

  • It increases freedom

  • It shifts the responsibility for maintaining our well-being from us to an external Source

  • It goes far beyond knowing, doing, and obeying

  • It promises a future that consists of dreams fulfilled, needs satisfied, and abundant love.

Grace is not religion.

Grace is the abundant love of God, showered on us, regardless of our abilities or performance. It is the mission of Jesus, and it's one He fulfilled spectacularly.
