We’ve been talking about grace today at church and I think this picture from Pinterest sums it up perfectly.
In the first place grace is a bridge between us and God through Jesus. Sometimes we stroll over the bridge casually just keen to get to the other side. Other times we pause halfway across to look over the edge and to rest in prayer and sometimes we approach God and the bridge of his grace on our hands and knees struggling to move forward. The important thing to remember is God’s grace is always there, freely available, just waiting for us to stretch out our hand and grasp it.
