Although the grace of God is the most valuable gift that you will ever receive , it is a gift for which you cannot pay. The cost of the gift of God’s grace has been covered completely by the giver. The bible describes it this way: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8 (NIV)
And what do you receive when you take the gift? You receive a gift far superior to that of gold or diamonds. Its luster cannot be tarnished and its radiance cannot fade. It is the favor of God.
Imagine joy that explodes with the power of a supernova and that ripples throughout eternity. Imagine peace that settles in that cannot be dislodged during the stormiest of times. Imagine confidence to stand before the ultimate Judge of the universe knowing the verdict has already been decided for you. This is grace.
So where do you have to go? What do you have to do? How far does one have to journey to find this most supreme gift?
Not far. In fact God’s gift is right before you. It is an opportunity that you must not let slip away. You are invited. Take the Gift!
