Of Grace & Graves
Soul Snack 177/12 ... Of Grace & Graves
We have all made our bed but 2000 years God had lain on it in the grave.
For those who still wrestle immersed under sin, sunk in the mire of a spiritual quicksand or threatened by a gangrene of the soul the already extended arm of The Almighty remains within reach.
He doesn't say:
you have made your bed so you can lie on it!
Instead He says,
you have made your bed but I can lift you from it!
Grace is the snorkel to those eye deep in sin and still sinking.
Grace is God's life-giving blood to all with spiritual leukaemia.
Grace is never finished with you when you want to be finished with sin,
BUT - God will no more force His grace upon you than sin needs to be your grave.
For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. (Roms 6:14)
