Saved by Grace

Fall into the loving arms of God.

Psalm 31:6

Into your hands I commend my spirit; you will redeem me, Lord, faithful God.

+++

It seems it is only when we experience the unmerited, unearned redemption of God that we are able to extend that same redemption to others through our words and actions.

Until then…we will likely be harsh critics of sinners…not instruments of God’s redemption.

However, sooner or later…each of us fails. We each have some (or many) flaws.

These are not places of shame but rather the entry points of God’s grace.

Allow yourself to contemplate the unconditional love demonstrated by Jesus when he responded with compassion after his brutal crucifixion…forgiving his persecutors from the cross…even when they had not asked for forgiveness!

Allow that amazing truth to sink into your soul.

How can you do anything else but fall into the loving embrace of such a God?

It is not through our strength or actions that we are redeemed…but only through the Grace of God

In the words of St. Paul, “For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10).”

God loves us because God is good…not because we are.
