The gift of grace is given, but our job it to receive it, to reach out and take hold of this treasure so lovingly given. We can only receive by believing. Faith is the energy that empowers our hearts to take hold of grace. Grace of God given in Christ is a gift to be unwrapped and lived in. How often have we left this precious gift unused on the shelf of our self-sufficiency?
How often have we received the fullness of God with mental belief, but denied the power of the gift in the way we choose to go about our day?
