Amazing Grace! Weíve all heard this before but it has a nice sound doesnít it? Those two words have a lot of meaning in them. Letís take the whole phrase, Amazing Grace. Whoís grace? And what is grace anyway? We all know whoís. Do I have to say it? Godís Grace.
Is His Grace just His good feelings? No. His Grace is also what He wills. Itís so important because itís His. Anytime thereís a conflict, as his children, we need to respect His Will. His Grace is amazing too. Thatís something you canít even put into words.
What can amazing grace do? Anything He wants it to. Why doesnít He take away all our problems then? Because then, weíd most likely be selfish and never think about anything else. We are important but not to the point of being the only one.
We must always think of God as a loving father. As a Father, even as cosmic as He is, He wants to love us and feel our love in return. Heís God. He has this right. Who are we to deny Him this? Yet, we do it all the time. In the name of freedom, in the name of false gods, which can be anything from money, to too many Barbie dolls, in one collection. Our age does not protect us. Anyone is open to this who has any feelings.
When God calls you, it is not a good idea to ignore Him. He has better things to do then to have to keep calling us all the time. Once should be enough.
