Grace


But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ~Romans 5:8


The other day my Uncle Steve was telling me about this message that a preacher was preaching on TV. He compared grace to a camel. When I first heard my Uncle Steve say this I was like, "How did he do that?" My Uncle Steve explained that we can not climb up onto a camel's back when it is standing, but the camel has to come down to us. That is exactly how grace is. It is so big, that God made a way for it to come down to us. I was reading the definition of grace and I liked it. The definition of grace is, the state of being protected or sanctified by the favor of God. I love the old song "At Calvary" and in the song it says in the 4Th verse, "O the love that drew salvation's plan! O the grace that brought it down to man! O the mighty gulf that God did span At Calvary!" Grace is so beautiful and it is so much more because God brought it down to our level.

I love "At Calvary". My mom used to sing that song around the house all the time.

Dad didn't tell me about this story/message. I'll have to yell at him! LOL
