The Restoration of Grace

On the opposite side of the sin spectrum is God’s grace. Grace is the kind of undeserved love and or unmerited favor exhibited in the father who ran to his son outside the city gates in the Parable of the Prodigal Son. God is like that father: Even though we break His law, He pursues us with His affection.

Grace flows from the heart of God. In spite of our sin, the Restorer bends the knees of His heart to us in order to engage us, the undeserving, with His love. Paul penned, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).

God’s radical movement toward us can be remembered in the acronym GRACE: God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. When will you accept God’s gracious pursuit of you?
