There is no way that we can give a true presentation of God’s unreasonable grace, other than to get a glimpse through scripture and experience it ourselves.
We are God’s workmanship
God created us and gave us the ability to choose. God has a divine purpose – man has a choice whether to fit into that divine purpose or not.
In our natural state and due to our “sin issue,” in a spiritual sense we are born dead. There is no cure for the disease of sin… outside of grace.
The Grace of Salvation
The story of salvation is a story that we should continually be thinking about and talking about. It should be a story that never grows old.
God has extended the provision for salvation and grace to every one. On our own we can never attain what was needed for salvation.
Without Christ we are all “perishable goods” without Christ. Perishable goods have a short shelf life. We all have an “expiration date,” our days here are numbered… and then there is eternity.
Paul tells us that all of our “goodness” is like filthy rags. God came along, even while we were yet sinners, came along and gave us a way out. A way to come into his presence.
That is unreasonable grace.
The Grace of Forgiveness
Let us not lose the significance of the fact that we can be removed from the darkness of evil.
1 John 1:8-9, Job 1:6-10
How many times have caused the heart of God to bleed?
Forgiveness must be an awful word for the devil and his angels. Praise God that they are some of the sweetest words that we can hear. It’s unmerited and without equal. Forgiveness is the cornerstone of God’s relationship with us.
2 Corinthians 9:15
Again the forgiveness that we are offered from God is totally unreasonable.
1 John 1:9
God requires much of us. He has given so much for us…
If we don’t “take advantage” of the gifts that God has given us there is a very real possibility of losing the possibility of the gift.
God’s free grace is unreasonable. Let us live carefully and prayerfully, knowing that we’ve been bought with a price.
