If you’ve been around church for very long, you’ve likely sang about grace that is amazing. But we need to ask a big question about amazing grace: Who gets it?
Who gets it, as in who understands it? Do any of us really understand it? Not just grace as a doctrine, but grace as the gift of God’s power to save us and keep saving us. Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14). We are to grow in grace and knowledge (1 Peter 3:18). It would seem that there is growing in our grasp of truth and then there is growing in truth’s grasp on us, the living out of grace. Do we get it? Does it amaze us?
Who gets it, as in who receives it? This is the question we will be answering one piece at a time in the coming weeks.But this morning we’ll be looking at Scripture’s answer to why we call grace amazing in the first place. We’ll see that grace has been God’s heart and God’s work since before time began. We’ll see that grace as been at the heart of God’s story as it has unfolded in Scripture and grace will continue to be at the heart of God’s story as if unfolds into the future. Let’s get amazing grace!
