Thinking about God’s grace toward me

grace -noahThe biblical definition of God’s grace is His unmerited favour towards the unworthy sinners, by which He provides salvation from sin and its condemnation.

God’s nature is gracious. In fact, we perceive His grace through His divine actions which show His goodness towards us, such as salvation, forgiveness, guidance, provisions, protection, etc. So we can say that God’s grace involves His free actions for the benefit of His people. How wonderful is that God is gracious both in His nature and in His actions!

“. . . The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth” (Exodus 34:6).

“. . . But thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not” (Nehemiah 9:17b).

(Cf. Psalm 86:15; 103:8; 112:4; 116:5; 145:8; Joel 2:13; Jonah 4:2; 1 Peter 2:3)

I have been thinking of His grace towards me, and pen down my thoughts about it:

Yes, I don’t deserve it,

Neither can I earn it,

Nor can I buy it:

And yet I have it,

For God has giv’n it to me,

Freely, richly, forever.

I’ll never be short of it,

For it’s giv’n abundantly.

I’ll ever trust upon it,

For it’s always sufficient.

I’ll forev’r be glad in it,

For it’s exceedingly rich.
