For many people the word grace is associated with giving or receiving personal space from someone else. Grace in the God Story could easily be translated undeserved kindness. Both our human need and God’s greatness find a home in the word grace. Because our need is so never-endingly deep and God is so ultimate in His kindness, God’s grace really is amazing!
Today we are talking about the beautiful aspects of God’s grace and the impact of being loved by God, even though we are quite unlovely. In such a discussion much depends upon how great you think God is. If God is small to you then His grace will be limited in your mind and heart. If He is expansive to you, then your own grateful heart can attach to this bright and morning star! (2 Peter 1:19) Can you see this connection in thought?
