Through his death and resurrection Christ made us into a new community: the church. This community lives according to its own ethics. Because all that we have received has come to us by grace, so also our interactions with each other ought to be governed by a principle of grace. Grace is outward looking and causes us to focus upon more than just ourselves. Instead, we look from the perspective of eternity and the perspective of our union with Christ and we see ourselves as part of the community of the redeemed. We are part of a community that revels in the grace we have received from Christ and delights to show that grace to each other.
