His amazing grace captures my heart every time I think of what the LORD Jesus Christ did for me.
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ: Though He was rich, for your sake He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich.” [2 Corinthians 8:9 HCSB]
I grew up in a traditional church. I am so appreciative of the truths that they instilled in my soul – that there is a God and that I have an accountability to Him.
While I embraced those truths, I was a bit unsure how to live out that accountability. In my search for how to live for God, I learned about grace, but it was not until I met Pastor Jim Gardiner at Loomis First Assembly in the early 1980’s that I began to grasp the depth of God’s grace. He taught me about God’s wondrous love and about God’s Amazing Grace.
Oh, that Amazing Grace, the power of that grace in my life!
After four decades I am still plumbing the depths of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I think I will be plumbing those depths throughout eternity. Every time I will see my Savior, who gave up the riches of glory to walk this dusty earth – without even a place to lay His Precious Head – I will be overwhelmed by His love and Amazing Grace.
He gave up everything so that I (a wretch who had nothing) might have everything in Him. Now I live in the power of that grace … and will live in it for all eternity.
