What is grace? It is that underserved, unsolicited, and unconditional love, favor, and blessing of God. Grace is a free gift that is far more amazing than anyone could ever describe. “For by grace you have been saved trhough faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not the result of works, so that no one may boast.” Eph. 2:8-9
And God continues to pour that grace on us every day in many ways, but we often don’t recognize it. We tend to look for spectacular signs and wonders and miss the every day signs of grace all around us – an unexpected phone call, a smile, a word of encouragement or forgiveness. Grace is all around us and if our eyes, our ears, and our hearts are open we will see and experience this grace.
May we allow the Holy Spirit to open us up and make a space for grace in our lives today!
