The Grace of God, His nature, His character, have been revealed to us through His written word and through the Living Word by the incarnation of His son Jesus. Without this revelation we have a tendency to dream up some mythological god and create for ourselves; our own private; “God in a box”, and in so doing we stumble around in the dark, with philosophies of this self – serving bully who is anxiously waiting to punish us for a wrong doing, and withdraws his love and relationship from us intent on sending us to hell. Alternatively, we mesmerize ourselves with the grandfather ideology, who only has a warm and fuzzy sort of Santa Claus outlook, which says, enjoy yourself come what may.
We read in Isa 40 “ Behold Your God”
He is a loving gracious father who wants an intimate relationship with us, he has emotions and rejoices when we rejoice, and weeps when we weep, simply because he cares and loves us with a love eternal, and that’s why he sent his son to secure our salvation, that we may spend eternity in heaven with him.
God’s nature and grace are immutable, loving, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and because of his love for us His amazing grace is simply that; “ amazing”.
Be amazed at his true character, which is totally out of the box.
