Review Galatians 1
Just as grace changed Paul’s life, it changes your life. Through grace and by grace, you are changed.
What is your grace story?
Craft your grace story. Consider the following:
1) Prevenient grace: How was God working in your life before you were aware of God’s love for you?
2) Justifying grace: Where did you encounter Christ for the first time? How did Christ transform you?
3) Sanctifying grace: How are you continuing to grow to be more perfectin love? Consider the challenges, opportunities, and growth you’ve experienced. Consider the moments that moved you to a new place: change of occupation/work, moving, family structure, birth, death, illness, recovery, service opportunities, leadership roles, missions experiences, etc. God is not finished with you yet. Are you going to be made perfect in this life? Yes, John Wesley, we know the answer should be yes. For most of us, Christian perfection is a lifelong journey.
Lord Jesus, thank you for loving me as I am, inviting me on this journey of grace, and helping me to become more like you. Thank you for challenging me to be a person who not only knows about grace, but embodies grace to the people I encounter. May it be so today and always, Amen.
