Have you ever truly pondered the amazing grace that Jesus Christ offers us? How can we not be awed by that incredible fact?
I realize that everyday life tries to trample down our JOY and hope in Jesus, but I try to make a conscious choice everyday to focus on this one unimaginable fact:
Jesus Christ died for MY sins. He took the punishment that should have been mine. Because of this amazing grace and mercy, I can look forward with JOY and hope to everlasting life with Him in heaven!
Remember that our greatest JOY and Hope is in our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ and no one or nothing else. The song “Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone” sung by Chris Tomlin is a wonderful reminder of how much God loves us and sacrificed His own Son so that we may live.
because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in trespasses,
made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
and raised us up together,
and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
that in the ages to come He might show
the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
