Grace

We in the Christian community hear that word a lot. "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

There is absolutely nothing you can do to make yourself acceptable to stand in the presence of God. No amount of good works will be sufficient. It's one of the most precious gifts Christians can possess.

But do we really understand grace? When I tell someone outside the faith about God's grace, they generally scoff and say it's too easy. Why wouldn't God require us to do more to get right with Him? It's a challenging question since we tend to want to control our lives and strive for what we need and want.

I believe even Christians struggle with the concept of grace. I know that I do. Frequently I discover an ugly thought lurking in my head. Or, a comment that speaks ill of someone else erupts from my mouth without permission. Or I eat that extra dessert I didn't need then later I ask myself why.
Each time, I receive that gentle reminder from the Holy Spirit that my thoughts or deeds are sinful, He allows me to confess and ask forgiveness. But that seems to happen daily, hourly. Does God really forgive us that many times?

Yep. His grace is sufficient for us.

I can only thank and praise Him for his powerful grace working in my life.




About Flawless

Though Jess Colton gave his life to the Lord, he held onto an old habit. Fueled by alcohol, he spent a night with a girl from his past, defying his Christian principles. When he quit drinking to honor God, he discovered another addiction. Now he can't manage his own life as his weight soars and diabetes threatens to claim him. Jess is baffled when the beautiful Holly Harrison declares her love.

Holly Harrison lived to please herself. But everything caught up with her in one moment of time when a destructive motorcycle accident altered her life forever. Nowhere else to turn, she looked to God for answers. Now, she's convinced no Christian man would be attracted to her. She doesn’t plan on falling in love with the handsome Jess Colton seeing past his bulk to the Godly, tender man within. When Jess drives a wedge between them, she loses hope of a future together.

Can Holly overcome her handicap? Can Jess find control over his eating and his life? Only God has the answer.
