Grace and the ocean JesusGraceology isn’t a word that I could find in any dictionary, but it should be. The informal word, “ology” means the study of or branch of knowledge when attached to a root word. Graceology by my definition is simply the study of grace. One could write volumes of books without end on the subject of grace and never have its fill. To me the unending, unrestrained power of grace in its absolution, is its greatest form. The power of grace is free from ostentation; it is simplistic in its assimilation, yet full of grandeur in the magnificence of its absorption.To my soul grace is like . . . A quenching cold ice tea on a hot sultry afternoon

The smell in the air of a fresh spring rain

The feeling of the ocean hitting the shoreline, kissing my feet

The joy of holding a new-born child

The feeling of snow falling on my tongue

A cool breeze on a hot summer day

An umbrella in the rain

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ redeems our past and gives us hope for a glorious future. The grace of God turns Imperfect to I’m perfect in Christ.

Without grace, I am a liar. Without grace I am self-absorbed, conceited, seeking my own recognition while putting my own needs above that of others. Without grace I am in this for myself.  Without grace I am nothing. Without grace I am human and nothing more.

With grace I am a child of the living God, heir to all eternity as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Because of the sacrifice of Christ, His blood by grace poured out for me – I am free. Free of the punishment I deserve from my misdeeds. By His grace He has provided for me everything I could possibly ever need. In grace my existence is entirely in Him; everything in the depths of heaven, everything on shallow planet earth.

It is in grace that we are assured that God has planned everything out for us. By grace in the personage of Christ we have a wonderful and glorious life, both here and in the world to come.
