The Riches of God’s Grace
I sat upstairs in ‘The Snug’ this morning looking out through the wet windows at our rain-drenched land. And I thought that just as the clouds pour forth their rain upon the earth, so too God pours out his love upon us day by day. I read Ephesians: “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of his grace that he lavished upon us with all wisdom and understanding…
“But because of HIS GREAT LOVE FOR US, God, who is RICH IN MERCY, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you are saved.”
What beautiful extravagent verses! Thank you Father God for the gift of your son. Thank you Jesus that you were willing to suffer for our sake. Thank you Holy Spirit that you raised Jesus from the dead. We celebrate the riches of your grace and mercy and your great love!
