Have you ever thought much about grace? We hear the word, but the concept itself might be a little elusive. That might be because it’s hard for humans to understand and embrace.
Grace means simply that someone gives you something with no strings attached. Just for your good.
Ephesians 2:8 says, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.”
The Bible tells a simple story, really. Mankind sinned and brought evil into the world. God made everything, so He has the right to set the rules. And in His system, sin cannot be tolerated. So He made a way for us to be reconciled to Him, through His son, Jesus Christ.
Often, we try to do things to help life along. We plan, plot, and come up with programs. Our own ideas seem like the right thing to do.
But God’s way is always the right thing to do. Setting aside our own ego is key to finding peace in Christ. We literally don’t have to do anything for it.
We accept it in faith.
That is the gift of God.
Let’s pray. Lord, in your love for us, you make our path simple. Not always easy, but simple. Thank you for the gift of eternal life. Amen.
