When grace becomes amazing

Romans 14 has a nugget of good news. We all, every person that has drawn a breath, will meet HIM. We will meet God. At the end of our days we have an appointment with our creator.

There is a down side. We will have to give an account for our lives.

“10 You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister[a]? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. 11 It is written:

“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,

‘every knee will bow before me;

every tongue will acknowledge God.’”[b]

12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.”

For those of us who have accepted Jesus as our savior this this will be when we get to see Gods unmerited favor, his grace, truly become amazing. Our meanest acts, most brutal, most selfish, most shameful, all covered by Jesus’ substitutionary death. He stepped in and took our punishment. He absorbed it all, and God has absolved it all.

Thank you Jesus for dying in my place. Thank you for loving me, I love you Jesus.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?

  1. I know I am covered by grace but I still think of standing before the Lord with my life on a big screen in front of him and how ashamed I am going to be of words, thoughts and deeds of my lifetime. Some say they look forward to meeting Jesus and our Lord, I am somewhat dreading it.

    1. I think the embraces of our savior/brother and our creator/father and the cheering of the faithful along with the words whispered in our ear amidst the hugs, “well done!” Our life story will be running in the background like the credits at the end of the super bowl, no one will notice or care. God can’t wait to welcome us home.
