Grace, grace…

August 24, 2020

I have seen God’s grace this past week! I know it is not always easy to see and experience it today, but his grace is real and recognizable. In fact, it is our responsibility as his followers to show his grace.

In these uncertain days, many people are in need of his unconditional love that can be shown in various ways. It doesn’t have to be a big thing because in the smallest of ways we can show God’s love so that others can also recognize it and experience his grace.

Maybe it is a school teacher starting back to school, or a neighbor struggling with family issues. Maybe it is a stranger looking for help and food. God’s grace may result from just a simple prayer, just a step out of our way, an extra contribution, volunteering to serve others, or maybe just a phone call. If not the church, which is the body of Christ, his followers, where else can the world go to find grace?

The world is looking for God’s grace, his unconditional love and forgiveness; but it seeks them in the wrong places. They can be found, not in our own ideas of religion or piety, but in the life of Jesus, a life that transforms our lives to a life of grace. When you know Jesus, you begin to understand His grace. When you are obedient to his Word and learn to follow him, you will find and experience his grace.

I have seen and experienced his grace.  It is real and it continues to change me and change others. One lady came to the food pantry to get groceries this past week, but she walked away with more than groceries. She experienced God’s love and forgiveness, God’s grace.

I rejoice and I am grateful for his grace, which I need daily.

Marvellous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!
