“Grace isn’t an excuse to stay in your sin. It’s the power to get out of it.” Kris Vallotton
Grace is the key concept throughout the bible and in the Christian faith. My favorite definition for it is: I couldn’t earn it and I don’t deserve it.
I deserved the punishment of hell, but God graciously bestowed on me the gift of His Son who suffered and paid the price for me. Knowing this causes me to seek to know just how to show grace to others.
Does this mean grace is only for disciples of Jesus?
No … grace and kindness are evident everywhere. While we can’t give salvation to other people, we can embody grace in word and deed through our responses, presence, keeping short accounts, saying thank you, leading others, taking interest in others and choosing to live a life of love and joy!
