Grace

1 Timothy 1:14 (New International Version)

14The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

Grace. It may have different meanings for different people. Tonight I’m going to try and explain what grace means to me. To me this is one of the best undeserving gifts God can give us here on earth (aside from children). He freely gives grace to anyone who will receive it. Although in my eyes it doesn’t come without responsibility. I believe if you take grace from God, then you better be glorifying him while you are on this earth. We are not saved by grace alone. We need to make it visibly apparent in our works that we have accepted God’s grace. We need to make sure that everything we do is the inspiration of God and gives full glory to Him.

I strive everyday to show that I have accepted God’s grace. Yes, it is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Do I fail at it? Regularly. Does God hold that against me? Not if I recognize my sins and repent.

What does grace mean to you?
