My Great Need for Grace

I am deeply indebted to and in need of grace.  Grace is not a one-time need and it is not a one-time provision. I need grace today just as much as I needed grace on the day of my salvation. This is saving grace and this is sustaining grace.

In Titus 3:3-7, Paul paints a beautiful picture of grace. “For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

The law simply points out my weakness and utter helplessness in meeting God’s standards, but God’s grace makes it possible to be accepted by Him.  God will only accept those who are righteous in His sight.  We are made righteous and made acceptable through the power of Jesus Christ and the grace that He brought to mankind.

God’s grace has done something that no one and nothing could ever do for us.  Through His death, He offers life. Through His suffering, He offers salvation. Through His wounds, He offers healing.

I have a great need for grace.  But thankfully, my need for grace is matched by God’s great supply.  If you ever get over grace you’ve gone too far.
