Hello Summit Family!

Ephesians 2:8

Yesterday morning during my devotional time with God the writer of the devotion I was reading made this statement, “Entering into God’s grace results in a new way of life.  If we have little evidence that we are alive in Christ, the first thing we must do is reflect on God’s amazing grace to us.”

This statement drew me to an old hymn I remember singing in church as a child.  The hymn was “Grace Greater than our sins.”  As I listen to the words of that hymn once again, I am reminded of the fact that God’s gift of grace is more powerful than my sin.  God’s grace defeats sin in my life.  God’s grace brings freedom in my life.  God’s grace destroys the fear of death in my life.

Paul says in Ephesians 2:8 that God has saved us by his grace.   It is exciting to remember that I do not have to live a life of habitual sin.  Because of my new life in Christ, experienced by God’s grace that I received by faith, I now am free from the power of sin and free to obey Christ motivated by his love for me.

When was the last time you took a break from your busy schedule to reflect on God’s wonderful infinite grace?  Below are the words to the hymn, “Grace greater than our sin”.  Take time today through the words of this song to reflect and remember the awesome grace you have received from God.  Allow God’s grace to change your life.

“Grace greater than our sin”

 

  1. Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
    Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
    Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
    There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.

o    Refrain:
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

  1. Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
    Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
    Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
    Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.
  2. Dark is the stain that we cannot hide;
    What can we do to wash it away?
    Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
    Brighter than snow you may be today.
  3. Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
    Freely bestowed on all who believe!
    You that are longing to see His face,
    Will you this moment His grace receive?
