“By grace you have been saved.” Ephesians 2:8
Would you rather stay at a luxury hotel or in the home of a gracious friend, sister, or parent? Luxury suites can be fun! There’s the fruit and cheese basket as you arrive. There’s the selection of gourmet coffees and teas, when you’re ready to relax. There are those spa-worthy towels and fluffy bath robes. Wonderful!!
A gracious friend, on the other hand, will meet you at the front door with a hug. A gracious friend will urge you to knock on her door if you need anything. Gracious friends are generous. When the Bible describes God as gracious it has these qualities in mind.
God extends his grace to us. He sent his only son Jesus to die on a cross for all our wrong doing. Because of God’s grace we are His very own daughter. God has forgiven all, each and every one of our sins. We are the dearly loved of God – all and only by His grace.
