Grace, how do you describe Gods Grace: Unending Love, forgiveness, mercy, and comfort are some of the words I have heard used. I still ponder on the word itself in terms of Gods great gifts He affords humanity. One definition is: …” the permanent disposition to remain in communion with God and another is ” God’s intervention in the process of our justification.” As noted in Western Christian theology, grace is ” the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not necessarily because of anything we have done to earn it.” “It is not a created substance of any kind, it is an attribute of God that is most manifest in the salvation of sinners.”
Essentially, God gives humanity love, because He loves humanity.
Given we are given this gift from God, what NEED WE DO? Pay it forward. Give away that which has been given to you. Accept this wondrous gift freely and without pretension or reservation and give it away to others. Give Grace and you shall find Grace, is an old idiom. Otherwise, what you give away will be yours. Odd paradigm, though, isn’t it? It makes sense, because we BELIEVE, and yet, cognitively, there is so much space in between those words to ponder.
I encourage you this week to give away that which has been given to you, freely.
