This week I have been thinking about grace and the gift of mercy and salvation that we have. Also, I have been listened to the David Crowder Band. There are two lyrics from two of their songs that have just stuck with me all week.
The first is from Oh Happiness, a very fun and uplifting song. The song starts like this
There is grace enough for us and the whole human race
That’s pretty cool isn’t it!
The second comes from How He Loves. It’s just one part towards the end of a song full of pretty pithy and catchy phrases.
If His grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
Wow, that’s a great description of the grace that we have been given because of the death and resurrection of the Christ.
14Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come.
15But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16Again, the gift of God is not like the result of the one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. Romans 5:14-16 (New International Version)
If you have been given that much grace and mercy, how about sharing it with those around you? It’s a pretty cool thing!
Shine your light and let the whole world see.
