“Let grace be shown to the wicked, yet he will not learn righteousness.” Isaiah 26:10
How great is God’s grace? It is great enough that He would send His only Son to this wicked world, have Him rudely treated, and finally brutally killed in order to forgive the sins of all mankind. That is pretty great grace. Everyone, every man, woman, and child should fall on their face in repentance and thanksgiving that God would do that for us. But Isaiah says that what is reasonable is not necessarily so.
No matter how much grace God continues to give to the unrighteous, they will not just jump for joy and embrace the fountain of their daily grace. Isaiah says that in spite of the grace of God there are those who will continue to choose to live in unrighteousness and reject God’s call to hear the Gospel and believe. In this Advent season we are reminded daily of God’s gift to us and the need to daily embrace it in our lives and faithfully share it with others who have not yet believed.
Dear Father, Thank You for the gift of grace and help us share it with others. Amen.
