Morning Thought: Your salvation begins by grace, grows through grace and ends with grace. Grace means God’s work. It’s God’s forgiveness, mercy and power to make you like Jesus. The Lord’s grace is not like a pirouetting ballerina prancing in a play, but rather it’s a lion reclaiming the jungle of your life. Paul’s letter to the Philippians begins with grace and ends with grace. May your life also resonate with God’s empowering presence from start to finish. “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ…you are all partakers of grace with me…The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit” (Philippians 1:2, 7; 4:23, NASB).
