Thought to share: Grace is your word for the day. You have MY unmerited favor. You’ll never have to earn MY love. I love you because you exist. I used MY power and authority to rescue you. And now MY power and authority fills your life. You are surrounded by MY grace. MY strength empowers you. Now walk in MY grace. Extend MY grace. Love everyone in your path simply because they exist. Never require them to earn it. Use MY power and authority to rescue the lost. Take MY strength and support those around you. MY grace at work in you is not just for you, but should work through you to touch others.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (Amp) For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation].
2Corinthians 12:9-10 (NLT) Each time He said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
