Episode 177

TODAY’S READING:

But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise, grace would no longer be grace.

Romans 11:6

 

Welcome to day two, on our study about Love. Today I wanted to prompt the question, “How does Jesus love us?” The Answer is Grace.

 

Grace is what sets God apart from us. It’s what makes Him so great. He grants us, Grace.

 

Think about the amount of effort it goes into forgiving someone when they’ve offended you.

 

Imagine a time when someone hurt you. When that happens, your immediate response is to either respond out of anger or the “I’m going to forgive them, but I don’t need that person in my life,” and while those are perfectly human approaches, God is so different.

 

There is never a second guess; he gives us yet another chance.

 

We will always fall short. We will never be perfect. We can’t; we are flawed. We can study Jesus and really model our lives after Him, but what makes Him different is simple. He extends us, Grace. Everlasting, never failing, grace. Every single time we mess up, he extends grace.

 

This verse is beautiful; his love has nothing to do with our capabilities. It has everything to do with his Grace, for if it’s not about His grace, then what would we even need grace for.

 

PRAYER

Father God, we fall short. Every day we fall short of perfection. We are human, and we are flawed. We hold grudges, judge others, we look at life through a small window of perception. We are impulsive, and we feel the need to always be right. Yet, you meet us with Grace. Every lasting never-failing Grace, and for that, we are eternally grateful. We love you; it is in your holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
