Out of His fullness, we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:16-17 (NIV)

The word grace means more than just God's kindness or gentleness towards us, or even His mercy. It means His undeserved favor. It means God owes nothing to us and we deserve nothing from Him...especially when one considers these scriptures. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; Isaiah 53:6a When the Bible says ...it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:5b, it means our salvation was totally unmerited. It came solely because of God's grace.

The motive of grace is the infinite, compassionate love of our merciful God, but the work of grace was Christ's death on the Cross. When I imagine Jesus Christ hanging from the Cross, the spikes in His hands and feet, the crown of thorns pressed into His brow, His blood draining from His body, the soldiers mocking Him, and then Jesus saying “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Like 23:34 then I can begin to see the depth of God's grace. Then I know absolutely nothing can equal the infinite love of God for a sinful world.

But God's grace is also exhibited when we humbly bow before Christ in repentance and faith...for then we can find forgiveness and we can begin to understand the depth of His love for us. Thank God for His grace, for without it we would have no hope.

Insight: Do you have God's grace? Have you humbly bowed before Jesus Christ in repentance and faith? It is a free gift available for anyone who asks. No one is too good or too bad to be forgiven and receive Him as their Savior.

Dear Lord...Thank you for the hope we have available through Jesus' finished work on the cross. Please draw me closer to You, help me to trust in Jesus' finished work on the cross so I can receive Your grace. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
