Who He Is As The God of All Grace
I once jumped out of an airplane and was plunging to my death, but a parachute saved my life. As a young girl, my wife once rode an ATV full throttle towards a barbed wire fence, but her daddy ran to knock her off before it was too late.
We once were doomed in sin and death…
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—
by grace you have been saved—”
Ephesians 2:4 & 5
The next way that God showcases his grace is by showing mercy to those who deserve his wrath. Mercy, it’s not getting the punishment we deserve. Since our condition was so bad, we needed an abundance of mercy. Thankfully, mercy is something that God is rich in. There is no lack in God’s mercy. The infinite God has an infinite supply of mercy.
The reason He is rich in mercy towards us is because of the great love with which he loved us. God’s love for us is great and vast and deep and wide, immeasurably so.
He loved us even when we were dead in our trespasses. We were dead in the very things that God hates. We were sons of disobedience. We were God’s enemies. How loveable is the corpse of your enemy? Not very lovely at all. And yet there we were, dead in our trespasses and God loved us. He saved us by His grace.
What a showcase of God’s grace! He’s rich in mercy towards those who deserve His wrath. He loves the unlovable. He saves the doomed. But God…
Today, let’s remember who God is as the God of all grace (1 Peter 5:10) and marvel at how He has saved us by His grace, loved us when we were at our worst and richly showed us mercy when all we deserved was His wrath.
· But God… No matter what we go through, it can’t be any worse that what’s described in Ephesians 2:1-3. Then we get the hope of Eph. 2:4, “But God…” How might those two words help us the next time we find ourselves in a tough spot?
