A Seersucker State of Mind

| Grace |

the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessing

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

Ephesians 2:8-10

God is so good. He is such a good, good father. He is gracious. He is love. He is grace. Although we have sinned and made so many mistakes (trust me, I make a lot of mistakes), God still gives us grace and mercy and forgiveness. I cannot tell you how amazing that is. God's grace is so good. I really did not know what grace was until I witnessed it. Seeing some of the people who have made some of the worst mistakes be wiped cleaned from their sins and completely transformed has been amazing. Seeing some of my small group girls continue to learn and grow in Christ because of His grace has been so humbling.

To me, grace is the love that God shows through forgiveness. It's pretty amazing that even though we have rejected and sinned so many times against God that He has the complete power to wipe our slate as clean as snow. It's pretty amazing that God sent His only Son to die for us -- sinners. Even though Jesus was the Son of the King of Kings, Jesus showed us grace by humbling himself and serving. He was a Prince. He is the Son of God yet He chose to wash His disciple's feet, choose to help those in need, and put others before Him. That is so much grace especially when He was crucified on the cross. He forgave every single one of us. He forgave those who spit on Him. Those who beat Him. Those who rejected Him.

That is grace.

He is so good.

God sending His Son to be crucified on the cross.
It is by His grace that we can enter into the gates of the Heavens. It is by His grace that we can be relieved of our sins. Grace, His grace.
