undeserved grace

Grace ~ More than we Deserve – Greater than we Imagine
by Max Lucado

Grace upon grace . . . 

Indeed, we have all received grace after grace from His fullness.  John 1:16

Grace is the Voice that calls us to change then gives us the power to pull it off. 

God’s Grace has a drenching about it.  A wildness about it.  A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downess about it.
Grace comes after you.

In the presence of God, in defiance of Satan, Jesus Christ rises to your defense.

Precious as it is to proclaim “Christ died for the world.”  Even sweeter it is to whisper,
“Christ died for ME.”

Our merits merit nothing.  God’s work merits everything.

To accept Grace is to accept the vow to give it.

God sees in you a masterpiece about to happen.

God doesn’t scowl at the sight of you.  You’ve been bought, foot washed and indwelled by Christ.  
You can risk honesty with God.

Grace is simply another word for God’s tumbling, rumbling reservoir of strength and protection.
It comes at us not occasionally or miserly but constantly and aggressively,
wave upon wave.

When Grace happens, generosity happens.  

You are loved by your Maker not because you try to please Him and succeed, or fail to please Him and apologize to Him.  But because He wants to be your Father.

Trust God’s hold on you more than your hold on God.

More verb than noun.  More present tense than past tense.
Grace didn’t just happen:  It happens. 

You’ll be changed from the inside out… God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:2 (MSG)

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
