G is for...

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—" Ephesians 2:8

What is Grace?

An excellence or power granted by God.

The freely given, unmerited favor and love of God.

Grace is getting what we do not deserve.

I was telling my friend how I pray with the children that we can be examples of Christ. When we act poorly, why would Daddy ever want to be a Christian. We just look like big hypocrits. She said, stop trying to be Jesus and let Jesus be Jesus. You just be his grace.

Oh yeah.

"But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God's grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!" Romans 5:15

Father God,
Thank you for sending you Son, Jesus to die for my sins. I know that there are things that I have done in my past that I thought I got away with. But now I know that I never did. That He took my penalty. Thank you for showing me grace time and time again.
In Jesus name I pray.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.
