God’s Grace

Click blue logo for more Christian quotes

Christ died for the ungodly. Christ died for me. Without his sacrificial death, without God’s grace, I am powerless to save myself or make myself righteous. Jesus did for me what I could not do and paid off my debt to sin which I could not pay. He did it for me; not because I was good enough to be worthy of his death, but because I couldn’t be worthy without him.

  1. Steve, for some reason a picture of a brand new top of the range car came into my head reading this. A gift to a child. Unexpected. Unwarranted.

    When that happens, the child wouldn’t usually say “Oh no I couldn’t – I am unworthy of such a gift – I will always wear bits out – always get the paintwork dirty – always breathe the smell of leather and breathe out and pollute the fragrance – I just cannot get inside and enjoy this gift – I cannot – I must stand outside and look – only look from a distance – I am unworthy – so unworthy – I cannot get in and drive this car – best its stands here and looks new forever more!”

    I wonder why so often I hear that kind of response to His wondrous and unwarranted gift.

    • Yeah we seem so good at running on guilt and fearing what we would look like having such a gift, so it ends up being wasted and not used for good!
      When i feel underserving of all the gifts He seems to shower upon me , i try to always hand it over to God and then see what he can use it for! 🙂

  2. those first two sentences are everything. romans 5 – He died for the ungodly…rarely would anyone die for a GOOD man, but Christ died for the WORST! i give Him GLORY!!!
