Iím a recipient of it every day. And while I donít deserve it, itís doled out in huge scoops.
I woke up this morning and was still living on planet earth, breathing fresh air, able to get up out of bed, walk, and take care of my responsibilities. I didnít do anything to deserve such rich blessings, but God chose to give them anyway. Thatís grace. Lying beside me was the most beautiful woman in the world who loves me with all her heart. I donít deserve her, but God gave her to me anyway. And thatís grace. I have two healthy children and one robust grandchild who love me. I donít deserve them, but God gave them nevertheless. Thatís grace. Every good aspect of my life is because of Godís grace.
Grace defined is undeserved favoróin this case from God, and it is revealed to all who will accept it. For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people (Titus 2:11 NLT).
The most important thing Godís grace has delivered to me is salvation. When I recognized my sins needed forgiving and that they were separating me from a loving relationship with God, I asked him for forgiveness. And he granted it. No questions asked. I didnít deserve it, but he gave it nevertheless.
Godís grace also leads to my right living. Even though Iím forgiven, I still do battle with temptations to live against Godís will. Remembering what Christ has done for me encourages me to show my appreciation by obeying his commands.
Additionally, Godís grace gives me future hope. Iím delivered now and will be throughout eternity. I have an eternal home free of tears, pain, misery, death, sorrow, and every form of sin.
If you havenít experienced Godís grace, why not ask for it today?
Prayer: Thank You, eternal God, for allowing us to experience and enjoy what we donít deserve. www.lovelinesfromgod.com
