What is Grace?

Grace is amazing but what is it?  It’s undeserved but you were meant to have it, to embrace it.  No matter who you are, it fits perfectly.

Grace is not a logical, or informational concept.  It cannot be captured in a power point presentation, or a website.  It is relational and it lives in Jesus Christ.  It is not found in the systematic analysis of the Bible but the Bible is the story of how nothing could stop Jesus from making a way for people to be in relationship with him.  The Bible is full of ‘word pictures’ of what Jesus is like.

Grace is like the wind, you can’t see it; but you know when it is there. When you share time with a group of people you know when grace is there.

Grace is an ever expanding understanding of God’s unending love.  You can’t make him stop loving you; He never stops chasing.  God is heart-sick for your return. He isn’t waiting to settle a score or give you what you deserve but instead he wants to give you the very best of this life.

Grace is not giving up on having any enjoyment in life but Grace is being freed to seek the real depths of joy; to drink from the well fresh, with your own two hands.

Can we help each other understand Grace better?  Contact me and let me know.  I am following a man who calls himself “the truth” and “the resurrection”.  I don’t fully understand him but I can’t get him out of my mind; his love is amazing!

    WHO HAS SEEN THE WIND?
    By: Christina Rossetti

    Who has seen the wind?
    Neither I nor you:
    But when the leaves hang trembling
    The wind is passing thro’

    Who has seen the wind?
    Neither you nor I:
    But when the trees bow down their heads
    The wind is passing by.
