grace ...

i love grace ... God's grace ... as the hymn says "grace that is greater than all my sin ... "

God doesn't want anyone to be separated from Him ... He seeks us out ... and if we listen, we can hear His voice ... but He waits for us to accept His gift - it is never forced on a person ... we must make a choice ...

that is what grace is all about ... thank you Lord for opening my eyes ... so that i could see ... life with you was free for the asking ....


"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." Ephesians 2: 8-9


“ Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.” Hebrews 4: 7b

i think the older i get, the more i am SO THANKFUL for God's grace! i just wrap it around me, and it gives peace like nothing else in the old world can ... forgiven, and on my way to heaven - just because Jesus loved me enough to give his life in my stead - and now i'm living in grace ... :o)
