Grace is a light created by a love that conquered darkness in ways unimaginable. A light that intensifies our need for a Savior.

By Christian definition, grace is, "the love and mercy given to us by God because He desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it." 

With all that has happened in our nation in just the past two days, I believe grace is something we should all pause to consider. 
Something we do not deserve, yet something we are so freely receiving. 
It doesn't even seem fair. 
Why? Why are we, people full of heaps of sin, loved so indefinitely by a God who is so abundantly full of righteousness?

Blurring the lines and making some sins seem worse than others is 
exactly what we shouldn't be doing.
Sin is sin. 
It's black and white. It's right and it's wrong. 
And, luckily for us, grace has covered all of these sins. 

But, it was love that conceived this grace. 
It was the love of God that delivered this grace to us on a silver platter.
It was love, created so intricately by God, that nailed Jesus to the cross for the sin that we perpetrate daily.

1 Peter 4:8
"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a 
multitude of sins." 
And, this is why we were created: to love God and love His people.

Whether you think you know the answers, or whether you are quick to admit that you do not know where to even begin, one thing we can agree on is that our country is in great need of a great amount of grace. 
But, grace has been an essential need for us since the beginning of time.
As long as sin has been in existence, so has our urgency for grace. 
And, unfortunately also, our lack of love for one another.

The finest system of blinding with the light of God's grace is first by entirely radiating His unconditional, immutable love.

To understand God's reason for our creation, you must first understand the love He feels for us. The love that pursued us so inevitably that His grace was shown in the form of an atrocious death on a cross in our place.  

"Each time He said, 'My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.' So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me." 
2 Corinthians 12:9

Whatever may be your weakness, none is so immense that His grace cannot cover it. His love demolishes all, and will remain until the end of time.
I assure you, love does win. But, only because of the grace that was given for it.   

His love wins. Every time.

G is for Grace.
