It’s easier to talk grace more than live it, and living it is also about recognizing that God wants to use us now — even when we aren’t perfect.
We often want to wait until everything is scrubbed “clean,” but God wants to use us now. He says, “Give me your brokenness, and I will give you my wholeness.”
Grace is the great exchange.
It’s the recognition that I can’t, will never be enough, but I don’t have to. …because He was and is enough!
Grace is the freedom and security in knowing we don’t stand in our own merits and appearance of perfection. We stand in His merits and therein lies grace.
Grace is a position of victory because it is the supremacy of the cross over everything — every sin, every wound, every weakness.
Grace doesn’t excuse sin. It cancels sin’s power, and it cancels Satan’s burdens of shame and guilt. It puts it all where it belongs: at the foot of the cross.
So amazing and so beautiful!
