It is God’s grace, kindness and undeserved favor that reaches to us.
It is His grace which brings us to the foot of the cross.
It is because of His grace that He rewards us, even in our unworthiness.
ave you taken time lately to reflect on the wonder of salvation? Without salvation we would still be:
“Without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians. 2:12).
It is God’s grace, His kindness and undeserved favor that reached to us, even when we were His enemies He saved us.
It is His grace that covered our guilt with His righteousness. It is His grace that keeps us, for we were saved by grace through faith and kept by grace through faith. It is His grace which brings us to the foot of the cross, unable to brag, able simply to say that our best was as filthy rags in His sight.
It is His grace that not only covers our failures—it transforms them into distinctive points of power and ministry.¹ It is because of His grace that He gifts us, enabling us to experience the joy of service, the delight of laboring with the Savior as He builds His Church.
It is because of His grace that He puts resurrection power at our disposal, allowing us to persevere and prevail. It is because of His grace that He rewards us, even in our unworthiness. It is because of His grace that He indwells us, allowing us to experience the richness of moment-by-moment fellowship with the Spirit of the Lord.
It is because of His grace that He is returning for us, to transform us and allow us to experience the wonder of all He has prepared for us.
