I need God’s grace every day. Not just for God to overlook a couple missteps, but radical Grace to cover every thought, motive, and action. But God knew that. Jesus, dying on the cross and rising from the grave, not only changed my eternal outcome but also provides hope to live each day. My hope today is in His grace.
Grace is Jesus taking on all the weight of my sin upon Himself, without asking for anything in return. Grace is Jesus giving me the gift of unity with other believers. Radical Grace is what the apostle Peter was talking about when he wrote this:
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, (1 Peter 3:18 ESV)
Do you need Radical Grace today? Are you willing to extend grace even to yourself?
