God’s personal and real grace is astounding! Consider what I did before God’s grace purified my spirit, life, and personality.
I cursed God in mind, heart, word, and action. Still, God continued to knock on my heart and ask, “May I come in?”
I persecuted Jesus, God’s one and only Son in my mind, heart, word, and action (13). Jesus’ body is his people. When I encountered his body I was so repulsed that my thoughts were repulsed and I shoved them away with attitude. Still, the Holy Spirit continued to knock on my heart and ask, “May I come in and heal you?”
I was a violent, injurious, and arrogant man. Still, Jesus stood behind my heart’s door treating me with mercy because I acted ignorantly in my unbelief (13).
Through gentle kindness and passionate love, he brought me to faith in the Father, Son, and Spirit (14). God’s personal and real grace towards me is astounding. He is the rainbow after a violent storm.
