Day 5: Remember His Grace
Ephesians 1:6-7 “So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins.”
Devotional · · · This undeserved favor we receive from God is a primary reason and motivator for our worship. Grace is something that reflects and expresses His very essence as a God of love, and we are the recipients of that blessing. It is humbling to receive it (from Him and from others), and requires humility and strength to give it. He is so extravagant in His grace! It is the showcase of His glory that will be on display for all eternity (Ephesians 2:5-7).
Prayer · · · Eternal Father, I am humbled and so thankful for your lavish grace poured on me through Christ. Though I am so undeserving of it, I do understand by faith that the flow is constant and unending. All I can do is thank You and worship You and glorify You and stand in awe of You...there is no way I could ever repay You! Your grace has not only saved me, but is also an active, present, transformative, and obedience-enabling power in my life. Lord, I look to Your Spirit to help me live in that grace every day, and generously give it to others.
