Can Grace Be Overemphasized?

One of my Facebook friends asked this question in his Facebook notes this morning.

Here was my response:

If we’re declaring God’s grace, then it teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly (Titus 2:11-15). Any “grace” that doesn’t teach me to deny ungodliness is not God’s grace - it’s my own grace. God’s grace cannot be overemphasized - the problem is that our idea of grace is a “that’s okay” message rather than God’s idea of grace - consistent, ever-faithful, relentless, constantly pursuing, lavish, extravagant, unrestrained, and furious love that loves me the way I am but loves me too much to let me stay that way.
