“Grace always describes a gift, and a gift which it would have been impossible to gain for ourselves, and which we never earned and in no way deserved.”
From my morning readings in “The Letters to the Galatians and Ephesians”, Daily Study Bible Series, by William Barclay.
I always thought I had to earn worth, and I never could. Knowing that grace is a gift from my loving Father is so wonderful! It’s a relief, a joy! Now I can be me, and use my gifts and my love for His glory without worrying about the score.
