How To Live By Faith

Special Edition: How To Live By Faith

Happy New Year!

Max Lucado

To discover Grace is to discover God’s utter devotion to you, His stubborn resolve to give you a healing, purging love.

The Bible tells us, “You did not save yourselves; it was a gift from God.”  Does he stand high on a hill and bid you climb out of the valley?  No.  He bungees down and carries you out.  Does he build a bridge and command you to cross it?  No. He crosses the bridge and shoulders you over. This is the gift God gives.  A grace that grants us the power to receive love and the power to give it.  A grace that changes us and leads us to a life that is eternally altered.

All God wants from us is faith.  Put your faith in God.  And grow in God’s Grace.  More verb than noun, more present tense than past tense, Grace didn’t just happen; it happens.  May it happen to you!

“For the wages of sin is death, 
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 
Romans 6:23″
