“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8
I am alive today because of God’s grace. The sun came up this morning because of God’s grace. The stars were out last night because of God’s grace. The breath I’m taking in right now is because of God’s grace. I am forgiven of the sins I have committed because of God’s grace. I am forgiven of the sins I will commit because of God’s grace. I open God’s Word today because God’s grace has given it to me. I am able to pray, to have access to a conversation with the one and only God, because of God’s grace. I hear the robins singing in the prayer garden outside my office on this chilly morning as a reminder of God’s grace. The daffodils burst through a late snow a few weeks ago as a reminder of God’s grace. There are a thousand natural and supernatural benefits we enjoy every day because of God’s grace. Many, if not most, of these phenomena go unnoticed on a typical day.
What might happen if we noticed them more? What if we were constantly aware of God’s grace? We would be more thankful, more humble, more aware of what God is doing in the world, more aware of the needs of people around us, and more aware of the power of God’s Spirit available to us. And, in turn, God’s grace would be pouring out of our lives.
