Grace, grace, God’s grace.
Grace that is greater than all our sins.
What exactly is this thing called grace?
Favor, blessing, or kindness
And yet, God’s grace is so much more
We all stand in the court of the Creator of the Universe
A continuous law breaker
A criminal sentenced with eternal death
Condemned in sin with no appeal
I can ignore the law and the law-giver
But I am still condemned to eternal death
And then comes God’s grace
To receive something highly desirable that I cannot earn
And something I will never deserve
In His immense loving kindness
He offers His Son’s life
To pay the penalty of my death sentence
He offers eternal life
In the face of death
His grace is an open hand offering
As a sinner
Condemned to death
For violating the laws of the Creator
It is the only way to eternal life
The only question is
Why would I not in humility
Accept His offer?
And why would my stony heart
Not melt in the face of that grace?
