God’s Glorious Grace
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing … to the praise of his glorious grace. Epheisans 1:3–6
What is “grace”? Grace is a concept that is often misunderstood and therefore an experience that is often missed. Grace leaves God’s high standard intact and deals honestly with our failure. When God, the Majestic One, to whose holy law we are all accountable, without relaxing the high standards of his law, and without minimizing our many and grievous violations of it, provides in the person of Jesus Christ a substitute righteousness and a substitute sacrifice to endure the appropriate penalties for our failure, that is grace!
How would you describe such grace? What adjectives could possibly be adequate? The Bible calls it “glorious”—and glorious it is! It is a display of God’s glory that the universe cannot contain and that an eternity of exploration and celebration cannot exhaust.
