In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us…(Ephesians 1:8)
To give freely, to bestow generously upon, to shower with
God has not been miserly with his grace, Beloved.
He has not been frugal.
He has lavished.
When the Lord of the Universe saw your sin, he didn’t hand you a spiritual wet wipe.
He bathed you.
Grace is, quite possibly, the most costly thing in all of creation, yet God showers us with it. He doesn’t measure it out and give us and give us a jarful, saying “Use it sparingly. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.”
He pours it over us in endless waves.
We determine the value of something by what someone is willing to pay to obtain it.
So, what is your value to God?
Happy Monday, Beloved.
