Free Grace

God’s love is unconditional…meaning no conditions.

Luke 15:4-5

“What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he find it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy.”

Actually…I’m thinking Jesus is wrong.

Well…at least when we look at his scenario from a human perspective.

What rational person would leave all those other sheep unprotected and run off to pursue a sheep that was stupid enough to wander away?

Whatever happens to that irresponsible sheep…it’s its own fault…right?

Well…that’s how humans think…not God.

God is so gratuitous in love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and compassion…that no one is forgotten.

God doesn’t base loving you on whether you deserve it.

God’s love is free and abundant.

That’s what Grace is.

Bask in that awareness.

Pass that grace along to someone else through your words and actions.
