Why Grace?


All of us have done nothing, and cannot do anything to earn the grace of God in our lives. It is only by His grace that we can come to know Him.

Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast."

I have done nothing in my life to earn the grace of God. In fact, it still amazes me that today my life is filled with an abundance of grace. I want for nothing, except a continuous thirst for the knowledge of God.

If my life was filled with results of the works I myself have done, I would be dead and very likely thirsting for water in hell. But God has seen something in me worthy of His saving grace, and has given me a gift. He has seen in me the innocence I possessed as a child, and opened my eyes to see His grace all around me.

And boy do I see the grace. Every necessity in life has become mine. I see His grace in my granddaughters eyes when they smile at me. The rain and sunshine is mine only by the grace of God.

I find myself wanting to know more and more about this thing called grace and the God who has given it to me so freely. I crave His words and reasons for grace. Why has He given it to a wretch like me?

Only by the grace of God am I alive today, and only by His grace I am saved. Why?
