Grace…..


“Grace, Grace, God’s Grace…” such a beautiful song laid on the heart of Julia H Johnston, titled “Grace Greater Than Our Sin”

I woke up to the chorus of this song this morning and although I know the whole chorus, the Holy Spirit has me dwelling on just the first four words.  We all go through “stuff” and it is the life we live today.  Nothing has changed over the life of humanity, “stuff” or “things” happen and it becomes what we make of it all.  As HIS child, my perspective should be different than that of someone still lost, “dead in their trespasses and sin”.  My perspective should be that of constant opportunity!

HE, my Heavenly Father, has a plan for my life!  As such, the “stuff” offers me the opportunity to embrace HIS Grace and accept these opportunities for growth in faith and greater intimacy with my Savior and Lord.  Paul said, “…and everything that does not come from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23b).  I’m taking a very specific view of this last portion of the verse, but I think it’s a shorter reach than you might think when looking at the whole passage.  As HIS child, I should live as HIS child and this means believing that HE has already met every need in my life.  When I have a need, whether great or small, do I believe HE has already met my need or not?  Do I move forward in faith or do I question whether “HIS Grace is Sufficient”?

“Grace, Grace, God’s Grace”, HE provides us grace on HIS terms…FREELY.  His terms are, He’s has provided it, always and in abundance, period.  There are no strings attached, no conditions and nothing we can do that will change HIS provision.  We will either accept it or refuse it.  He doesn’t even require a “thank you”…..  How humbling is that?!  We, Tracy and I, have had and I expect we will again in time have the opportunity to extend this same grace.  Father, help us to always be willing to accept and then share Your Grace in exactly the same way YOU have and will provide.

By Faith, we accept that Your grace is available and ours without condition, we need only take hold of it and know that Your Grace is Sufficient.
