But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions- it is by grace you have been saved.
God healed our relationship with him by sending Jesus Christ. This healing gift was not earned, it was freely given. This is grace. I cannot ever be or act in a way deserving of this gift. This grace comes from a love greater than my understanding.
Holy God, I know I can never live up to any standard which would “deserve” your love. But I do accept your love, as a gift born of your grace. I will remember my promises to you, to strive to live my life worthy of your love. Amen
