Happy Sunday, BoP readers! For the last month the writers have been on a break, therefore sharing BoP favorites during the sabbatical. Tomorrow we will resume new daily posts. This semester we will be writing on words of the Spirit each week and will begin each week with a Word & Worship inspired by the Word of the Week. We hope you join us each day and enjoy the messages God has laid upon our hearts to share with you.
This week’s word is GRACE.
Today we take time to reflect on a precious verse and a beautiful song. We call it Word & Worship.
OUR WORD for the week: GRACE
Jesus is our GRACE.
“Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:16-17 NLT
Grace is a journey in which we can only experience when we have accepted the gift so freely given by our Savior, Jesus. We don’t deserve it and it can’t be earned. It’s not a license to do as we please, but rather live in truth with the desire to pursue the heart of the Lord with all that is in us without the shame of our past to hold us back.
OUR WORSHIP for TODAY: Grace to Grace– Hillsong
We can only begin to scratch the surface of what true grace is. Yet, we have such a perfect definition of it in the sacrifice that was made for us. What love the Father has for us! The words of this song illuminate this truth. We pray it renews your appreciation for His perfect love and grace for you.
How wonderful, how glorious
My Savior’s scars victorious
My chains are gone, my debt is paid
From death to life and grace to grace
When I see that cross, I see freedom
When I see that grave, I’ll see Jesus
And from death to life, I will sing Your praise
In the wonder of Your grace
Thank you for joining us every morning at Breath on Paper devotional blog.
