Standing before the judge
Her head held low
The allegations won’t budge
Accusers shouting their final blow
Tears drop from her eyes to the floor
Gathering her wits for one last fight
No one would believe her heart’s true core
She stands up straight ready for the judge’s bite
He stands regal above the crowd
Silence ringing out from the masses
Over his face no anger to cloud
And from a worn book he reads a passage
“Since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; they are now justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a sacrifice of atonement by his blood, effective through faith. He did this to show his righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed”
Young lady you have erred
But from my grace and love I will not bar
It is my gift I freely give
So that, daughter, you may live.
Grace, according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, is “unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification; approval; a special favor; privilege; disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency.” But what does that even mean? Put it in real life for me.
This month is normally a month of thanksgiving, especially for Americans. But instead I want to dive into something we often give thanks for, but maybe not have a complete grasp of what it means: grace. So for the next thirty days, I would like us to interact with one another on the meaning of grace and what it looks like in life. Please share your experiences on this blog and what the Lord has shown you about His grace. Every day I’ll post a scripture pertaining to God’s grace and I encourage us to dialogue with one another. As iron sharpens iron, may we use this time to do the same for one each other.
