Happy Monday to all of you! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday. I know Mother’s day can often bring heartache and sadness. I pray that wasn’t the case for you. If it was… I’m so very sorry.
I have a verse for you today that I hope will bring some comfort to someone who feels like God could never accept them. Maybe someone feels like they have just done to much wrong or that the work they do for God just isn’t good enough…
Romans 11:6 says “But if it is by grace, it is no longer on basis of works otherwise grace would no longer be grace.” (ESV)
Grace – Courteous good will. The free and unmerited favor of God.
That’s the definition of Grace. It is unmerited… unearned. It is God’s good will to extend grace to each and every one of us who will accept it. If we can’t earn it, then we can’t do anything to get it. No work we do will earn us God’s grace. By the same token, nothing we have done will keep us from it either! As long as we accept the gift of His grace, then we get it.
You wouldn’t think of refusing a birthday gift from your best friend would you? Jesus… AKA, our best friend… is offering you a gift. All you need to do is accept it. It has your name on the tag and everything.
Have a blessed start to your week my dear table family 🙂
