Grace – unmerited or unearned favor.
Unmerited or unearned – I didn’t work for it.
Favor – blessing (all the good stuff for me, not necessarily without pain but always for my own good)
God is the God of Grace. Whenever I hear the word grace, my mind stalls. It’s a concept that is difficult to comprehend. I cannot explain it well enough to make it clear. There’s a lot of theology involved in it, a lot of backstory stretching all the way to Jesus and Adam and Eve. So, I won’t go there for now. But I’ll try my best to show you what it means to me.
I discovered grace, the true meaning of it, when God didn’t give up on me.
“How gracious of you LORD God. Really there’s no need to (love me or care about me). In fact, I don’t even deserve it…”
“But I want to.”
“Yup. Just because.”
G is for God of Grace.
