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!
