Good Evening Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Today, the definition of "Grace" has been placed upon my heart. As I scoured the Scriptures pertaining to "Grace," the meaning always came down to this: The unmerited favor of God toward man. I have concluded that Grace is a gift from the Lord! We don't deserve His grace, but it gives it to us, anyway. When I stop to think about this, I realize, once again, that God id so good to us. As we grow in our walk with the Lord, we begin to extend grace to others...people that may be unfair or cruel. Honestly, you could not have told me, 10 years ago, that I would have a heart that lends "grace" to my enemies or people who I deemed as enemies. But, as I experience the goodness and grace of God, I realize that I want everyone to feel this "unconditional love." Yes, grace is love, forgiveness and welcoming...the welcoming of others into beauty and fulfillment of "unconditional love."
What does grace mean to you? How do you experience His grace, minute by minute and day by day? Share how He has "graced" your life~
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
