Romans 4:1–5; 5:1–2; Galatians 2:20

The study of one’s generational roots has become popular in the last several decades. Many have spent a lot of time, effort, and money to learn the details of the cultural background of their family history. Knowledge about our origins gives us a deeper sense of our identity, a better awareness of our purpose.

It is equally helpful to learn about our spiritual roots, to find out how those spiritual awakenings began, especially the awakenings that helped shape the faith of people who came before us. From those spiritual roots, we can find the direct origins of the grace we embrace today. What we received from our ancestors and what they received from their ancestors, all the way back to the apostles themselves. But what is the content of that heritage, and how can we make grace a reality in our lives today?
