We take some fresh and life-giving looks at the infinitely faceted diamond of grace. First, if you think you’re God’s gift to the world, you’re right. That said, life is not about you and me. And that’s the key to being God’s gift to the world. Find out what we mean.
Then, it’s painful: Think about the worst thing you’ve ever done or thought. Don’t dwell on it but bring it to mind. Now listen to this: “The Father in heaven has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light (Col. 1:12).” We break down this beautiful truth, especially diving into what it means that we are “the saints in light!” It’s mind blowing!
Finally, maybe you feel like you’re always the last one to be chosen. Listen to what God says: 2 Timothy 1:9—He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” God. Chose. You. And he chose you for a purpose that’s not about you. It’s about Him. And that’s where real life begins.
