Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace - Ephesians 1:3-7
Free is a word that gets people excited. Free gift with purchase. Free shipping. And free food is definitely one of my love languages.
But way better than any free gift we could receive on Earth, is the free GRACE that God gives to each and every one of us. Did that get you excited? Because it should!
We don't deserve grace. We're selfish, judgmental, and sinful people. And His grace is not something we can achieve by any awe inspiring feats of Christianity.
You don’t receive it by being a good person and making sure that everyone knows it. You don't have to earn God's Grace at all; You can't. He just gives it to you FOR FREE because He loves you!
