What does grace mean? It’s undeserved favor. You’re guilty, you’re not worthy, you didn’t earn it — but you still get a gift you don’t deserve.
So why is it important that you don’t deserve the grace of God?
Because if money or work or status could make God love you, we’d be an even bigger mess than we already are. There’d be looting in the streets and self-centered backstabbing would be even more rampant than it already is. A child born into poverty would be without hope.
But that’s not the way God’s grace works. The gifts of God are given freely because He is good.
No money. No striving. No effort. Grace alone.
The beautiful truth - grace alone. There is nothing that needs to be added to it. Nothing that needs to be taken away from it. This is the truth that powers all of the gospel. All is by grace, from grace, for grace. Rest in the grace of the gospel. And buy this phone case so your phone can rest in the protection of this case. See what we did there?
