God’s grace is a powerful thing. Many people have no idea what God’s grace is or simply don’t believe it’s something they could possibly need. I use to be one of those people.
I use to have a hard time seeing beyond myself to the world around me, because I was so busy. It was always about getting something done, never about loving, or even seeing, the people around me.
Receiving God’s grace means receiving something that is not deserved. Eternal life in heaven with God is offered to everyone through His Son Jesus, but we don’t deserve it because we are sinners. Everyone is loved by God equally, but at the same time, we are all sinners. The punishment for sin is death, eternal death.
Jesus conquered sin through His crucifixion on the cross and resurrection. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world. If you choose to believe this is true and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, believing he saved you from sin, then you will be forgiven of your sins, past and present. You will receive eternal life in heaven, not death, with God when you pass from this life.
Since I’ve chosen to believe and accept Jesus, my perspective in life has changed. It hasn’t changed because of anything I’ve done, it’s changed because God has changed my heart. He has helped me see the people in my life, not the tasks or circumstances of my life. I’m thankful for the grace offered to me by God through His Son Jesus.
My prayer for us today ~ Lord Jesus, thank you for giving of your life so that I may be forgiven of my sins to receive eternal life in heaven. I pray for opportunities to share God’s grace with others, Amen.
