Grace! What an amazing, impossible to comprehend, concept. We want so much to just follow the rules, but no matter how hard we try, we can’t live up to who we were created to be.
I was having lunch with a guy last week and he said, “All of our sins we will ever commit are already forgiven. Since God lives outside of time and space, it has already been done.” That is a great summation of grace. The questions is: Can we live into that reality, the truth that we are forgiven?
So much of what bogs us down revolves around unforgiveness. We either wan’t forgive ourselves, others or God, and it practically debilitates us. Grace is a breath of fresh air into the cloud that is unforgiveness.
