Grace is a vital part of being a Christian. We rely on grace heavily. Too often, our efforts, no matter how sincere, are imperfect. Too often our steps falter as we attempt to follow the One we love.
At the end of the day, most of us are thankful for grace extended to us by a loving, merciful and gracious God. It is a glorious thing to be forgiven, to be covered in grace. The truth is, without that assurance, we wouldn’t stand a chance.
“So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.”
Ephesians 1:6 NLT
Today, I want to say out loud how thankful I am for this Glorious Grace and remind myself to share the wrath of this wonderful treasure. My prayer is that I will be gracious to others. With God’s help I will be reminded that people make mistakes, they let anger rule sometimes, they allow jealousy and bitterness to take seed, they distort and manipulate to their own ends. And yet, even so, what they really need is glorious grace.
