CHEAP GRACE vs COSTLY GRACE PDF Print

Bonhoeffer, in his book “The Cost of Discipleship,” deals with the issue of “cheap grace” verses “costly grace.”  The idea put simplistically is that one requires a life with very little inward change, while the other . . . costs everything.  It’s plain which path Bonhoeffer himself promotes and which path he believes produces the desired results.

Everything within sacred Scripture points to the impossibility of the cohabitation of ideologies.  Either grace is cheap and requires little effort or sacrifice OR it is so very costly that the path of peace requires the denial of any possible compromise.

To believe is to obey.  There is no middle ground.  There is no saddle that straddles both views. 

We are called and in that call is a demand.  A demand to go and sell all that we have and then follow.   We are called, and in that call is the abruptness of John 6 where those seeking an easy meal are separated from the few willing to feast on the flesh of the Savior.

As Dietrich, writes, “When Christ calls, He bids a man to come and die.”

– Dale
