The Two-Fold Beauty of Grace
The ply of human thinking categorises (judges?) people. We each do this with a culpable regularity. We may be right or wrong, but being either is irrelevant.
The boxes of our assessments are too often ungraciously labelled:
Could we be the very ones who make it hard for those we name loser to see that Jesus still accepts them?
Winners can be hard on losers. Winners can become proud and so those who are not feted they disdain.
Could the lost, the least, the last and the lonely be of the loudest value to our good Lord?
The Christian soul that travels earth is healthy when it:
thanks the Lord, conscious that we who are Christian meet in heaven on the basis of what Jesus has done, not what we have done.
That's the beauty of grace:
it makes winners out of losers without making them the kind of winners you'd want to avoid, and
grace was given to be fallen into, not fallen from.
He has saved us and called us to a holy lfe – not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time. (2 Timothy 1:9)
