This day’s reading: Ephesians 2:8, Ephesians 4:7, Hebrews 4:16, 2 Peter 1:2
Thank You for Your grace that is so amazing.
The New Testament Greek word for grace is defined as joy, pleasure and delight that leads us to Christ. Grace keeps, strengthens, and increases our Christian faith, knowledge and affection. Grace kindles us to exercise Christian virtues. Isn’t that amazing? Unfortunately, there are many people who have a hard time accepting God’s grace. We can walk around feeling like God is mad at us for all the wrong things we have done which makes it hard for us to face God. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that it is God’s grace that leads us to Him and helps us to live for Him. Grace is a free gift from God. You did nothing to earn it, and you did nothing so bad to disqualify yourself from being able to receive it. Let’s receive His grace today and thank God for giving us grace.
Prayer - God, thank You for Your grace. Thank You for leading me back to You. Thank you that because of Your grace, I can live for You and do all the things that You have created me to do. Help me to receive that grace and help me to offer grace to others as well. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
