I Peter 4:10
God has given gifts to each of you from his variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God's generosity can flow through you.
So, there I sat. In a fold out chair, on the side of a soccer field, reading about God's grace. Tears rolled down my face. My spirit leaped inside me. My heart was spilling over at the rim. At one point, the revelation of His grace was so strong, I wanted to jump out of the chair and do a mini praise dance right there in the grass. Don't worry... I stopped myself.
I'm enjoying my book immensely. But, most of all...I'm enjoying God's grace.
By grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.
II Corinthians 12:9
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
II Timothy 1:9
God has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and Grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.
For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
