Business Upgrade

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. (Eph 2:8)

My husband and I are reading through a little book by Randy Alcorn called “Grace.” First thing every morning he reads the day’s passage to me while I drink coffee in bed. So I am reading a lot about grace. Grace is God’s unmerited favour given to the undeserving.

Yesterday I was given a graphic illustration. Our youngest son was returning to Russia after a holiday in Australia and was given a business upgrade together with his two companions. They didn’t apply for it, they didn’t ask for it and since they hadn’t paid for it, they didn’t deserve it.

May I never take for granted God’s grace to me. It is free to me but cost Christ everything. It is not cheap and I certainly don’t deserve it. It gives me the right to call God, My Father, and for me to be His child. I have all the privileges of the children of a loving, rich and powerful king. How blessed I am!

Prayer

Father, may I never take your grace for granted but live in an attitude of gratitude, extending grace to others. Amen.
