“For it is by GRACE you have been saved…” Ephesians 2:8 (NIV)
Every other Wednesday morning I lead a Small Group of 8th grade boys at my kids’ school. We talk about a multitude of topics. Lately we have been discussing God’s grace and what it means for us. We’ve watched the video below three or four times. Check it out.
Why is it so incredibly hard for us to remember this simple fact?
We spend so much time (wasted time) worrying about what we have done when all we need to remember is God’s incredible GRACE.
In this season of Advent, take some time in your day to ponder the incredible, awesome, wonderful, gift of GRACE.
Realize the incredible act of sacrifice that the Son freely performed when he left his place at the right hand of the Father.
He came to earth as a human baby. Fully human. Fully divine.
He knew the incredible sacrifice that would be necessary in order to grant his Amazing Grace.
And he still came.
God WITH us.
