Grace

What does it mean to live a grace-filled life? In a world which can at time seem unrelenting and unmerciful to those who don’t measure up or don’t fit in, we sometimes struggle with grace. In situations where we have been wronged by others it can be difficult to continue to give away what is not deserved. Then again, in those times when we have been the one to do the hurting we can struggle to accept the grace of others, feeling instead that we must somehow “make it up” to the person in order to placate our guilty conscience.

As followers of Jesus we know that forgiveness and new life are ours through the cross — an undeserved gift freely given to us. What does it mean to live in that grace on a day to day basis? It means to accept that there is no way we can repay the debt we own, and yet it is ours because of God’s immeasurable love for us. It means to, like Zacchaeus, allow salvation (Jesus) to come to our house for dinner. And, like Zacchaeus, we respond in the only way that makes sense; to give away what we have to everyone!
