“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”Ephesians 1:7
The huge gaseous ball, the sun, converts around four million tons of hydrogen into energy everysecond. And it has been doing that every second for thousands of years and continues to do so. It is releasing energy right now. Whether you are asleep, awake, at work, or at play…the sun’s energy is pouring forth. Its energy is (for all practical purposes), never-ending.
Think of God’s grace and mercy the same way. Because God is love (1 John 4:8, 16), His grace and mercy are extended on a never-ending basis. Right now, you are receiving benefits “according to the riches of His grace.” You can’t receive God’s grace by your senses. But your mind can understand that His grace came to you, is coming to you, and will come to you for all your days.
The same grace that allowed you to be saved is also now building you up and keeping you from falling. Thank God for His never-ending grace and mercy.
