GRACE and LOVE…
The average person speaks nearly 16,000 words per day. That’s 112,000 words in a week, and nearly 6 million words a year. That’s a lot of yapping!
If you were to scan the entire human vocabulary for the most beautiful word in the world, what word would you choose? Some may choose love, and I would agree. There’s a strong biblical case for that word. (John 3:16, Romans 5:8, and John 13:34)
The word I’m going to choose – GRACE. Why? You need it. You can’t live without it, but you can’t purchase it and you can’t earn it. It only ever comes by means of a gift, and when you receive it, you immediately realize how much you needed it all along, and you wonder how you could’ve lived so long without it.
God’s grace is the most powerful force in the world, and I would have to say that it’s the most beautiful word in the universe. It reaches you where you are and takes you where God wants you to be.
It has the power to do something that nothing else can do: transform you at the causal core of who you are as a human being – your heart!
