We are prone to assume that if something is gentle, it isn't strong. I beg to differ. There is a quiet strength in gentleness. God's grace gently covers our sins and washes them away. Is there anything more powerful?
It is easy to be overwhelmed by the shame of our sins and our shortcomings. We want to do better and be better, but we fall short of hitting the mark. We don't just miss the bullseye... sometimes we don't even hit the target. Isn't it good to know He doesn't give us on us for our missed shots?
Like the drawers we stuff when tidying the kitchen counter junk... or the clothing item that "covers a multitude of sins" with a little stretch here and there... God's grace covers us. His grace sets us free. It truly is "Amazing Grace".
"Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace." -Romans 6:14
The weight of our sin is always oppressive. Sin makes us feel hopeless and helpless. The enemy of our souls loves it when we feel defeated. Jesus came to pay our debt and set us free from sin's enslavement. We can be free. We are free. We simply need to believe and receive.
Grace is an expression of love. Love always wins.
Today, I am grateful grace covers sin.
