Grace

Five Minute Friday – Grace

Grace.  Unmerited favor.  More than we deserve.  So thankful for God’s grace.  So thankful that He extends it to everyone.  So grateful that He works in His people to allow them to extend it to others.  Just yesterday, I received grace from an old friend.  Forgiveness for an old hurt that I had all but forgotten I had inflicted.  Turns out I’d received it from her a long time ago, just had never accepted it.  Where once there was bitterness, now there is friendship and love.  Thanks to grace.  There is nothing we can do to earn grace, nothing we can do to repay grace.  But it is essential that we accept grace.  Accepting God’s grace gives us the privilege of spending eternity with Him.  Accepting the grace of others allows us blessings beyond anything we can comprehend.  For our own good, and the good of those offering grace – we need to accept it and live in it.
