Reaffirming Grace

by

You’re messed up. So am I. Sin has deeply affected us.

Some affects are obvious. We lie. We lose our temper. We gossip. We act selfishly.

Some affects are subtle. We judge others. We try to appear better than we are. We hold others to our standards. We give love when we feel it’s earned.

The good news? We live under God’s grace. Our sin is forgiven. We’re totally accepted. He’s fully pleased. We’re not a disappointment to Him. He loves us no matter what.

Do you have that kind of relationship with your children? I don’t mean you have to do it perfectly—God knows we can’t, but do your children live under your grace? Do they know they’re fully accepted and loved apart from their performance?

Could there be a more appropriate day than Good Friday to express to your children that they are deeply loved and fully accepted, not only by God, but by you?
