Eternity Unfathomed

Let’s Talk about Grace, #5

The greatest measure of grace can’t be measured. From, and for, all eternity grace is generously, freely, lovingly poured over us and into us. His grace fought for our lives, bought our freedom, and brought us into His family.

God’s grace gives us a name, worth, and purpose. His grace declares we are His, we belong, we have eternal security. It proclaims we are beneficiaries of His abundant grace and have become grace-gleaners.

God’s unfathomable grace is ours for an unfathomable eternity. It is not temporary or sporadic, not generated by mood or inclination, not dependent on merit or behavior—and it will never stop. It has no expiration date—it is eternal. There are no outlying areas it can’t reach, no depth it can’t delve, no deficit it can’t satisfy.

There is no limit on how generously it will behave. God’s grace is lavished on us—glorious, freely given, redeeming, forgiving, and rich. (Eph. 1:4-9)

We cannot comprehend the never-ending, ever-present, liberally-given grace of God. But we can imitate it. As grace-gleaners we are called to be grace-givers with gracious attitudes and actions, speaking words seasoned with grace and offering kindness from a heart that’s been shown grace.

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Eph. 5:1-2

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. Rom. 13:8
