Lent 2019 | Day 3: The Challenge of Grace

For the last couple of days, we have looked at a couple facets of God’s grace in our lives. Today, I want to look at grace, not from God’s perspective, but from ours. What I mean is that after we have become aware of the breadth of God’s grace we are confronted with a significant challenge. That challenge is to become ambassadors of God’s grace to the world.

The world is a hard place to live in sometimes, but we have been enabled and empowered to live in it. There are many ways for us to be distracted but God has given us everything we will need to live for him in this crazy world.

I find that the great challenge is to take what we have received to those God will bring into our lives. We don’t have to be afraid to talk to people of what God has done. We are works in progress. We are in the path of sanctification. We are not what we are supposed to be, but if we stay faithful to the truth of the Gospel, the truth of God’s grace we will find the challenge is still present. Just not a burden that causes us to be hindered.

I pray that we will see the call of God to be ambassadors of Christ to be a challenge worth taking and not a challenge needing to be avoided.
