Of all the blessings I have received in my life, God’s grace is one I continue to receive daily, I don’t deserve it but God gives it to me, and reveals His love to me each time.
I will never completely understand His grace, why He would give us grace, mercy and love when we live and act the way we do. We surely do not love Christ as He loves us, we truly do not give grace and mercy to one another as He gives it to us.
Even those who reject Christ receive grace and mercy, for God provides for them, wether they have abundance or little, it is from God.
Here in America, we are totally living in the grace, mercy and love of God, we of all people on this earth should be grateful, humble and God honoring in how we live, but we are the exact opposite. We have become a nation of people who believe we are entitled to anything we want, we are prideful and we do not even acknowledge God exist, until we are in need.
His grace and mercy is what sustains us right now.
We deserve nothing good, for none of us are good, yes at times we do good things, but not always. We complain more than we compliment, we curse more than we bless, we ask for more than we give, we think more about ourselves than others , we build our kingdom , seek our own good far more than we do the kingdom of God, or Christ Himself.
This is why I say, of all the blessings I have received in my life, God’s grace is one I continue to receive daily. I could daily stay on my knees 24 hours a day and thank God for His grace, and never move for 5 or 6 years or longer, before I caught up with thanking Him, or I can walk with Him daily and give Him all glory and honor in all I do.
I could speak of His grace forever, but if you have never received the gift of salvation, through faith by grace then we need to talk, for you won’t understand.
You and I have received far more than our share of God’s grace, if Christ is your Lord and Savior, His grace alone through the gift of salvation is more than we deserve, let us not only live in His grace, walk in His grace and be receivers of His grace, let us be givers of His grace, let us be telling of His grace and in all we do may our lives be portraits of His grace.
