If you're going 20 over the speed limit and you get a $100 ticket, that's justice.
If you're going 20 over, and you get off with just a warning, that's mercy.
If you're going 20 over, but the cop gives you $100, that's grace!
"For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ." John 1:17
None of us deserve grace, but God freely gives it to all. It's humbling to accept a gift that you don't deserve, but God wants you to accept it and live it out. He has great things in store for you!
Jesus, thank You for coming to bring light, truth, freedom, and grace. I know that I don't deserve grace, but I will accept it. I want to be an example to those around me of You and Your goodness. Help me show grace to others and to glorify you! Amen
