“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast;”
Grace. The spectacular promise of favorable attention in spite of unfavorable actions.
Saved. Lifted up from a life of perpetual despair and wrongdoing.
Faith. A mustard seed is all it takes to grab on to the greatest gift of all time.
Gift of God. An offer so compelling we can hardly bear to look away and yet struggle to fully understand.
Works. The well-intentioned striving that often comes from spaces of guilt and shame rather than perfect love.
Anyone. All of us laid bare at the foot of the cross, unable to point to anything we’ve done as proof of our salvation.
Thank you Father God for your plan which includes me, allows me to be human, yet beckons me to a new way of living which floods my every moment with the promise of perpetual beginning. Your plan for my life is all I need and all I want to long for. Guide me in knowing and understanding the heavenly process which excites my heart and captivates my mind.
