Today’s Scripture: I Timothy 1:14 ESV: and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
My argument with Paul this morning went something like this: “You can not be the worst of sinners because that is me.” There is a new “chief” in town. Seriously, do you sometimes wonder why and how God loves you?
Those of us who have been forgiven much have an extra dose of thanksgiving. I am mindful of the woman who washed Jesus’ feet with her tears and her hair. I am that kind of thankful. Down on my knees before Jesus knowing I am not worthy of His love and His grace.
Yet, I have it. In the abundance of Jesus’ grace I have been cleansed. Further yet, I have been commanded by God to share this hope I have in Jesus Christ. I can write to you today not out of my righteousness but out of the overflow of Jesus’ grace.
How do you show your thankfulness for the grace of Jesus?
Today’s Prayer: Father God, thank You for loving me. I offer You my tears, my hands and my life to wash the feet of Jesus. I am thankful for the abundant grace of Jesus Christ my Lord whose loving grace overflowed for me. Help me to show my gratitude by loving as Jesus did and by completing the work You have commanded me to do. Thank You LORD. Amen
