Grace!  The bank gives us a grace period.  The seedy politician falls from grace.  Musicians speak of a grace note.  We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings and pre-meal prayers.  We talk as though we know what grace means.

You turn the page of your Bible and look at the words.  You might as well be gazing at a cemetery…lifeless, stony…nothing moves you.  But you don’t dare close the book, no sirree.  You dare not miss a deed for fear that God will erase your name.

If that’s your feeling, grace can speak to you.  God’s grace has a drenching about it.  It comes after you.  It re-wires you!  From insecure to God’s secure.  From regret riddled to better-because-of-it.  From afraid to die to ready to fly.  As Paul said in Galatians 2:20, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”  You might call it a spiritual heart transplant!
