God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:7)
a work of the Spirit,
revealed through the person and work of Christ,
toward me to turn me from my sin.
I am an example of God’s incredible wealth of grace and kindness shown through all He has done for me. This is an amazing thought! It immediately leads me to reflect on all He has done in my life and to interpret this work as works of incredible grace and kindness. All His answers to prayer rise from His grace and kindness to me.
As I live in Him, and His grace, my love grows more perfect, leaving fears behind. I have nothing to fear because He is with me with grace and kindness. I find myself consciously and willfully abandoning myself to the only One who is completely trustworthy.
It is God’s kindness that puts me in need so I will humble myself in contrast to living for myself. I pray, He hears. I seek, He forgives. I turn and He restores. This is grace and kindness!
It is God’s kindness that allows me to know Him through His truth. The God of the universe is revealed to me, personally, through His incomparable truth. This is grace and kindness!
Lord, thank you for your unending grace and kindness shown to me. Because of You, fears are gone, I’m forgiven and your Truth continues to reveal You to me and me to myself. What joy!
