reckless grace

God’s reckless grace is our greatest hope.

-Timothy Keller

As a bird cannot exhaust the air in the sky nor a fish exhaust the water in the sea, neither can we exhaust the grace of God.

-Charles Spurgeon

His grace is enough.

You’ve heard the catchy song and sung it at church. Read the bible verses talking about grace, yet still entertained the thought that those verses don’t really apply to you, as God didn’t know what you just did that was so unforgivable.

Grace isn’t about you.

It’s about the giver.

In one long lasting love story,God recklessly laid His heart, and life, out in plain sight for the world to see just how much He loved, loves each & everyone EVER.

The ultimate debt was paid in full. For you. For me. For us all.

Whether you believe it, or accept it, or not.

God knew who would accept His grace covered love. Who would struggle with it. Who would come running to it out of breath with desire. Those who will believe they aren’t good enough to accept it. Those who would refuse it, coz only this life matters, right?

And He offered Himself anyway.

Reckless.

To those of you who think you’re too far gone for His grace…you are believing a lie.

His grace is inexhaustible.
Unending.
Eternally extended.
Forever intended, for you, for me.

No matter what would be what you would think I would say now, but I won’t.

One part of grace does depend on you.

Receiving it when it is offered.

If you had been locked in a life sentence prison cell, for many months, years..and a lawyer came by to tell you that you have been able to open the jail cell all this time by saying a word…would you not take the leap and try it?

Or is the fear of the unknown too much for you after settling for less for so long?

The outside of that cell leads to a love beyond what you can imagine.

A grace that paid the whole price for your faults, once and for all.

A hope that will outlast any other ever in history.

Its time to jump on on and bathe in the grace awaiting you.
