Grace That is Greater Than All Our Sin
By Ryan Kelly
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
One thing that I have asked God to give me recently is the vision to see people’s pain. This isn’t in any way to pry into their past or to know things about them that are private, but rather so that I can better understand that we all have “skeletons” in our closet that hold us back.
Why would this be helpful? Because in order to address grace, you must first address the need for grace. There is not one single perfect person in this world today. Some may seem “better” than others, but every single one of us deserves a first class ticket to hell because of our acceptance of sin and rejection of God.
Fortunately for us, God does not force us to have what we deserve. And this is where grace comes in. We do not deserve salvation, but God gives it to us anyway simply by accepting the ultimate sacrifice for sin in the form of Jesus.
God’s grace is greater than all our sin. No one is beyond salvation in Jesus.
So, when you are held back by the hauntings of the past or feel inadequate for the good things that God produces for you and in you, remember that we all fall short of the glory of God. But His grace is sufficient for us all, and it is given to ALL that believe and worship in the one and only Son of God.
