Amazed by Grace

I am grateful for amazing grace. Grateful because grace is my lifeline.

The older I get and the more I attempt to understand the world and the God who created the world the more I am amazed by grace.

We live in an imperfect world. Imperfect people do imperfect things. Imperfect people do not deal with life perfectly. Imperfect people make lousy lovers. God knows this. So, God does the very best thing: God shows us what love looks like. Romans 5:8 says, “While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” While we were dead in our way of life, Christ died for us.

While we were lost in our own sin, Christ died for us. While we were trapped in our own guilt, Christ died for us. While drowning in our own addictions, Christ died for us. This is Good News. “Not that we loved God, but that God loves us and sent his Son to die for us so that we may live.”

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see.

Anyone else amazed by grace?
