Grace . . .Grace . . .
However, I consider my life nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me…..the task of testifying to the good news of Christ’s grace.”

Acts 20:24

“Grace, grace, God’s grace. Grace that will pardon and cleanse within; Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that is greater than all our sin.

I really do love contemporary praise music, but it always seems that when I am struggling with something or just need a special touch the words of an old hymn come to mind. I have been thinking a lot the last few days about grace. I must admit it is a term that I struggle with because I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around it. According to Webster’s grace means kindness or favor. In the Biblical sense we know it to be a gift. We are saved by grace. We are so undeserving of the forgiveness that Christ gave us by giving His life on the cross so that we have the forgiveness of our sins.

I am sure that I have probably mentioned this before, but grace was a lesson that sticks out in my mind as one of the biggest lessons I learned while in Honduras. I looked at what the women in Honduras dealt with and I compared them to the things that I dealt with and I was overcome with God’s grace. As clearly as I can state it……It made no sense. Why did He choose for me to live where I lived and have the opportunities that I had? I have often, in the time that we have been back in the states, questioned the why. We know as believers that we are told that there are many things that we may never know the answer to. We accept through faith. I have a t-shirt that says just that.  Grace through Faith .

Over the time that I ministered to the women in Honduras I cannot begin to tell you how many times they extended such grace to me. They could have been resentful, jealous, angry or even depressed but I never saw it or felt it. Grace in the purest sense of the word.

To all of you who have been keeping up through Boundless or read the Messenger know that I have been very burdened to start a mentoring program for Women’s Ministries.  There are so many hurting, sad, downtrodden women who just need to know first about God’s grace and secondly to feel some grace extended from a Christian sister.

Try spending some time reading Acts 20:24 “ However, I consider my life nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me…..the task of testifying to the good news of Christ’s grace.”

How is your Grace Meter feeling right now? Should be pretty high if you love Jesus and have made Him the Lord of your life. Ready to share? If not, you better get praying because God needs every one of us.
