Holiness and grace go together like a pair of shoes. Being saved is one amazing thing, living a holy life is another; when Jesus died a sacrificial death something extraordinary happened: evil was atoned for. God’s love covers a multitude of sins while God’s grace gives us room to fail, so we can get up again, so we can continue to grow, even though it’s sometimes two steps forward and one step back. God’s love and God’s grace sustain us in our daily endeavors. He makes our life flourish. The bounty of spring we are experiencing when the season hits is a vivid reminder of that. Be encouraged today to receive His love and rely on His grace. God wants you to thrive – nothing more, nothing less!
