We take a plunge in the bottomless ocean of grace. First, something we desperately need to keep coming back to: Grace is a gift, purchased by Jesus’ death on the cross and given to us freely out of God’s love for us. If you feel that you don’t deserve God’s favor, you are exactly where you need to be to experience it!
Then, God’s grace will be most beautiful when we are standing on solid ground, breathing the air of a recreated earth in a body that will never die. Grace has everything to do with hope. And in a Covid ravaged world with over 2.6 million deaths and things moving into lockdown mode again, our world is gasping for hope. The people in your world a ready to hear about your forever hope!
Next, grace not only brings forgiveness but it powers us to live a new life. Finally we hear about Tom. Living with his girlfriend. She’s discouraged and wants to go to church. Tom dusts off his guitar and plays three hymns for her. Then they randomly pick a church to go to that same morning. And the three hymns that are sung are the same ones Tom had just played. The grace of God! Today Tom is a new creation in Jesus.
