Tonight at church Ps Murray was talking about grace. You can never really hear enough about grace. It’s humbling, strange, confusing, wonderful and totally undeserved. I like grace. I love grace. I don’t get it or understand it. Maybe that’s what I’ve always loved about faith. I don’t get it. I don’t get God, at all. I understand that Jesus wanted to sleep down in the boat during the storm, I understand the whole Jesus sandal thing (totally comfy), I know Noah’s Ark, Jonah, Ruth and Boaz, Samson & Delilah, Elizabeth, The Stable. I know all that. But I still don’t get it. I like that. I think so many people get tripped up on figuring it out. I like to just know that God loves me and that is grace is sufficient.
This is my favourite passage of scripture

Romans 5

1THEREFORE, SINCE we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).2Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God.

3Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.
