God’s grace is so massive! to try to explain it would not do it justice. over and over again we put our foot in our mouth or we make decisions that weren’t the best for us or someone else involved. or better yet, we move in a direction we know we shouldn’t. bottom line: we sin. and the beauty of it all is He’s got us covered. waiting for us to look to Him instead. He cleans up our messes, sometimes without us even having to ask. and in all cases, He works it for our own good – if we would just allow Him.
to begin to understand how, and more importantly why, He does we must first understand we cannot mistake His grace for acceptance of the wrongs we’ve committed!
The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, (Romans 5:20 NIV)
may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, (Ephesians 3:18 NIV)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 NIV)
