So rich in kindness and grace

Scriptures say the riches of God, the wealth and abundance He bestows on His children, are endless treasures and glorious unlimited resources. So this small study will not even begin to encompass everything. But we’ll focus on just one thing to celebrate each day.

We must begin, of course, with the very reason we are heirs to endless treasure — God’s great mercy toward us.

He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.

I did not deserve this kindness from God. Many times, I was my own god … or at least, I thought I was. I really was a slave in the kingdom of darkness. Why did He rescue me? Nothing in me made me acceptable to a holy God, and I could do nothing to make myself worthy. Yet the Lord of the universe loved me!  And even before I knew or loved Him, He paid a great price for my freedom.

Showered me with kindness? Yes! And washed me of my sin, wrapped His robes of righteousness around me, and now presents me as a spotless child of His own.

There is nothing in this world or the next that I treasure more than His love and mercy, His forgiveness and grace.

Amen.
