Grace. This word is by far the best word in my life. The kids know what it means to me.
Earlier this week I was in a one-on-one Bible study with someone when grace came up. I talked about those moments when I have been overwhelmed by His grace. It leads to a time of worship like no other in my heart. These are the moments that I wish could be shared with those who do not know His grace.
Then yesterday during men’s group, one of the men said he wasn’t sure he really understood grace. I am sure he does not understand it. I suggested that he study grace. He looked at me and said something like “I wouldn’t normally do that but you said it with such conviction that I will.”
I suggested we study grace in our group. They said we would start when I get back from Africa so I looked up a few books. One of the books I found was titled “Charis: God’s Scandalous Grace For Us”. Ericka saw it and questioned it. Normally scandalous is used in a negative connotation which threw her off. But God’s grace for us really is scandalous. I know I do not deserve it and yet I have it. It is unbelievable. It is scandalous.
I didn’t buy the book. I have to finish one of the books I am already reading. I am so tired.
