Grace is a wonderful and priceless gift. It goes on and fully covers faults and blemishes, but doesn’t conceal; it heals. It is a lightweight and pure balm. It can be applied to any imperfection that exists and never runs out. The supply is endless. The substance of grace is never in question; the application of it is the tricky bit. Without recognition of its need, it can’t be accessed.
It is, many times, hesitancy in acknowledging sin and the depths of its wickedness that hinders the reach for grace. The programming or pride that determines one sin is small or insignificant while others are worse is faulty wiring. All sin results in separation from God. The lie that sin can be managed or controlled is rooted in the false belief that sin can be healed apart from grace. All sin causes heart damage, though some can be seen more readily than others. All sin needs Christ to be made right.
But grace…. Grace is always there; readily available. A Savior exists. “Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died– more than that, who was raised– who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us” Romans 8:34. There is no sin too small or too big, there is no sin too stubborn or too rooted in the heart, there is no sin that can overcome the grace of God.
