the incredible grace of God

Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Are you ever overcome by or touched by something?  Maybe it is the sunrise or the sunset that grabs your attention.  Maybe it is something that one of your children does or says that leaves you speechless.  There are many things that happen in our lives that make us stop and appreciate them.

It is the grace of God and how God works in the lives of people that often overcomes me.  Yesterday I heard a story about a lady that had a horrible past and how God confirmed that He would never hold it against her because she was completely forgiven.  Another story I heard was a great blessing on a church that was seeking God to take their ministry to the next level.  God rewarded their faithfulness.

God desires to work in your life and mine.  As we acknowledge His grace we will see more and more of His grace.  Once again, the way we live by faith and share God’s grace the more people will come to know God and His grace.

Think about God’s incredible grace!

“Without a heart transformed by the grace of Christ, we just continue to manage external and internal darkness.”  Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel

“It may not be an easy thing to live in sweet fellowship with all those with whom we come in contact; but that is what the grace of God is given to us for.”  D.L. Moody

“Spiritual disciplines can do nothing. They can only get us to the place where something can be done.”  Richard J. Foster, Celebration of Discipline

“The meaning of life. The wasted years of life. The poor choices of life. God answers the mess of life with one word: 'grace.'” – Max Lucado

"Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God's favor."   Dwight L. Moody

"And you know, when you've experienced grace and you feel like you've been forgiven, you're a lot more forgiving of other people. You're a lot more gracious to others."  Rick Warren

May we be overcome time and again with the incredible, unending grace of God.  Be known as the recipient and the giver.
