God: thought hard on this gift…
Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast”.
When we think of the grace of God, I believe many of us belittle or underestimate what God intends in our lives. Some things in this life doesn’t just happen, but when it does it can be very easy for us to be critical of ourselves.
We tend to beat ourselves up when we slip up and it takes a long while to overcome the stain upon our conscience and spirit; we literally beat ourselves to a frizzle: but thank God for His grace.
He could allow us to stay in such a state of brokenness without recovering, but then where would the grace He paid such a high price for be in our lives.
Grace: unmerited favor from the one true God and our Savior.
Embrace the rich gift He thought so hard to bless us with.
