One of the very first things Jake ever said to me when we first met was “Do you know that if you never even lose a pound here that you have God’s Grace?” “There isn’t anything you can do to make God love you more.” I didn’t really know it at the time, but I’m learning it more and more everyday. It resonated with me so much that when I was at a Christian book store the other day they had little metal stamped words and I bought the “Grace” one. I usually have it in my pocket as a reminder. I found this definition on the internet:
“grace has been defined as “the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it”
Ephesians 2:8; “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God”.
It really is amazing thing to think about…there isn’t anything you can do to make God love you more. Nothing. It’s sometimes hard for me to think about and know it to be true. Someone that loves you for you, warts and all, and knows all your warts. Someone who wants the best for you.
God’s Grace. Amazing stuff.
