The grace of the Lord is the goodwill and mercy of the Lord for that is completely unearned.
When I look back to moments of grace in my life, I am often astonished and humbled by their miracle. Grace can happen we least expect – and usually does. Grace is a precious gift that should never be taken for granted. Today, I invite you to reflect on God’s abundant grace in your life.
In your own words, what does grace mean to you?
When, and how, have you experienced unexpected grace?
What special significance do you think grace holds for you right now?
Scripture for Reference
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John testified about Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’” For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
– John 14-16 (NASB)
And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. -2 Corinthians 9 (NASB)
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. -Ephesians 2:8-10
