More Than Enough

Grace-rAre there times when the words of a song pop into your mind, and you can’t shake them?  Off and on throughout the day you find yourself singing the words  or humming the tune.

I had that experience yesterday with the song Grace Greater Than Our Sin.  The chorus of this song speaks of the wonder of God’s grace:

“Grace, grace, God’s Grace,

Grace that is greater than all our sin”

It’s through His grace that God saves you and equips you for the Christian life.  God made this clear to Paul when He said:  “My grace is sufficient for you (2 Corinthians 12:9).” In essence, God was saying that His grace is “more than enough” to meet your needs.

Paul wrote at length about the subject of grace, and these verses speak of the different aspects of grace:

  • You are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).
  • The grace of God is abundant, and it abounds (Romans 5:17, 20).
  • Ephesians 1:7 speaks of the “riches of His grace.”
  • When you are in need of grace, Hebrews 4:16 instructs you to “come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

If you have wandered away from God, His grace is more than enough to get you back on the right track.  If you have stumbled in a weak moment, God’s unique grace will strengthen you.  As the Psalmist said:

Whoever lives under the shelter of the Most High will remain in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “You are my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.  You will cover me with your feathers, and under your wings I will find refuge. Your truth is my shield and armor. ~Psalm 94
