FREE AND UNDESERVED
If we have ever received something we felt we didn’t deserve, we know the feeling of being blessed. God’s grace allows us to receive what we don’t deserve. We can also grace others by giving to them when they don’t deserve it. We have often heard others say “by the grace of God…” That means the outcome of something they received was better than they expected. God’s grace helps us when we need it most.
Romans 11:6 “And since it is through God’s kindness, then it is not by their good works. For in that case, God’s grace would not be what it really is—free and undeserved.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, thank You for Your grace. We sometimes don’t understand it, overlook it and deny it. However, You give it to us anyway. We don’t deserve it but You freely give it. We know there is nothing we can do to earn it. Thank You for Your kindness and Your grace. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God’s grace is free.
God’s grace is undeserved.
God’s grace is amazing.
God’s grace cannot be bought or earned.
God’s grace is sufficient.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (NLT)
