Undeserved Grace!


God came to save All People! You don’t have to be wealthy, beautiful, intelligent, or come from a famous family. God made each one of us in his image. He knows all our failures, weaknesses, and our struggles, but his love for us never wavers.

On Tuesday, a new homeless person joined our Bible study group at the Oakdale Rescue Mission. She said that she was stranded and needed to get a ride to another town. I told her I could take her halfway, and another person gave her a bus ticket so she could get to her desired destination. As she got in my car, she immediately started sharing with me how her family won’t help her because they don’t like her right now. Her parents are raising her children, and they don’t want her around. I asked her if she uses drugs, and she said, ”yes, I need to go to rehab. ” As I listened to her excuses, my heart broke not only for her, but her children, and parents. She is 49 years old, searching for something in this world that will fill the hole that only God can fill.

God’s love endures forever; all we need to do is accept it, it’s a free gift. That is true, undeserved GRACE!
