We have started our study on grace this week and how God wants to change our hearts. I believe that as we accept God's grace through Christ we are in turn to give grace to those around us. This is had to do in today's world. Every day Christ followers are under attack, but God calls on us to love our enemies and forgive as Christ forgives. Seems impossible doesn't it?
Be encouraged by these two verses:
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.- Galatians 2:20
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. - Colossians 1:27
We are to live, love, and forgive as Jesus did. It is for His glory, and under His power that we can.
Be wise today and always - praise God for His hope and grace.
