Prayer About Grace

If you’ve been challenged this week by the cost of grace, why don’t you join me in this prayer:

Father God, thank you for sending your Son to die for my sin. Thank you for all that I have received because of your grace.

Help me never to take your grace for granted, as if it had cost you nothing.

Rather, would you help me to live with the power that your grace offers – a power to deal once and for all with the sin in my life.

May your forgiveness never be my excuse to disobey you.

Amen.

Headlines

Eminem recently released ‘Headlights’ – an apology to his mom, partly for a devastating song he’d written about her before. He has lots to complain and be angry about but still he says:

‘But regardless I don’t hate you ’cause, Ma / You’re still beautiful to me, ’cause you’re my mom’

Recognising how someone got hurt by words spoken; owning up to mistakes; being willing to let go and forgive; putting people and love first… Sounds a bit like grace in action to me even in the middle of all the messed-up stuff and contradictions of (his) life.

What a mystery grace is!

How might God be working grace into the mess and brokenness of your life?

‘But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, ‘God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.’ James 4v6

Grace Moments

You did it again, didn’t you? The thing you feel guilty about; the thing you were trying to stop doing. You’re angry, sad, and ashamed. You’re ready to give up.

Firstly, welcome to the life of every Christian ever. Secondly, pay attention. Embrace this moment, because it’s a grace moment. It’s a place where God wants to meet you.

Grace doesn’t give up on us, why should we? Struggling with bad habits? Make a new habit of turning to God in moments of weakness or failure. Be stubborn about that, because God will never stop working in you when you open your life to His grace.

‘for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure’ Philippians 2:13

The Ultimate ‘Bad Boy’

He was the ultimate Bad Boy – violent, foul-mouthed, hates God, despises people, into human trafficking, rapes those he sells. Then in the middle of a deadly situation, he cries out to God who saves him.

Why would you do that, God? Bad Boy deserved to die didn’t he?

Check out Ephesians 1v2-10 (here: http://bit.ly/1dLNnvu). Through his grace, God saves us. Undeserving, we find God’s love, forgiveness, power and presence if we seek it. God freely heaps his grace on us through Christ and changes our lives forever. Thank you God for being so generous, joyful and wonderful. We love you!

P.S. Bad Boy was John Newton who wrote the hymn Amazing Grace. God – your grace really is amazing!
