G.R.A.C.E.

There's a Dennis the Menace cartoon in which Dennis and his friend Joey are walking away from the Wilson's house with their hands full of cookies. Joey asks, "I wonder what we did to deserve this?" Dennis tells his friend, "Joey, Mrs. Wilson gives us cookies not because we're nice, but because she's nice."

The same can be said of our Heavenly Father. He gives, not because we're good, but because he's good. He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us for our iniquities. Instead, he is the one...who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things… (Psalm 103:4-5)


Looking at Jesus on the cross what did He do to deserve that? Looking at the empty tomb what did we do to deserve that? God’s loving kindness is G.R.A.C.E to us and for us. It is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
