Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.

It is only by the Amazing Grace of God that we are saved. We would be stuck living in our filthy sin if it weren’t for the love and compassion that Jesus showed for us on the cross.

I absolutely love how the Message translation tells us about His grace.

“Saving is all His idea, and all His work. All we do is trust Him enough to let Him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making & saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join Him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.” – Ephesians 2:8-10 {MSG}

God has lavished His amazing love on us and given us some of the ultimate gifts, Jesus & the opportunity to have a relationship with Him, and all we have to do is fully trust Him.

I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.

We were so lost, we were caught up in our own lives. It was only until we realized that Jesus laid His life down for us, for you and me. I can’t imagine not living my life for Christ. I don’t want to think about where I would be without Him.

“Yet it was our weakness He carried; it was our sorrows that weighed Him down. And we thought His troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for His own sins! But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on Him the sins of us all.” – Isaiah 53:4-6

Take a quick moment to thank God for the Amazing Grace that He has given us, time after time, even when we mess up, or feel like we have done wrong. He has paid the ultimate price for us!!

I hope this encourages you to remember the love & grace that God has for you every day!
