It’s "only" grace

I have once again learned something important this week… and I hope that I remember it a little longer this time. It is simply this…

When I remember the grace extended to me…
When I see the magnitude of forgiveness God offers me every day…
When I see the lengths God went to in restoring a relationship with humanity… let alone me…
I am humbled.
And when I remember that time and time again, that God-kinda-Grace is extended to me through my brothers and sisters in Christ, I am undone.

So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God. [Philippians 1: 9-11]

“Only Grace” by Matthew West

I am undone.
