Authentic Grace Alone is the great dialogue between the heart of God and our hearts. God speaks to us and brings us life so that we may enter into relationship with Him and each other.
Not just antiseptically (dull and obligatory), but rather affectively with loving and affectionate communicating of our hearts joining with His and each other.
Grace calls out to live and love out loud in our relationship with God!
It is by grace alone that God speaks with us. There is certainly nothing lacking in Himself that would cause Him to have to speak with us. It is by grace alone God communicates His love for us, unifying His heart to ours.
By grace, God writes our stories into His story.
It is by grace that God receives our love, and it is by grace that God calls us son and daughter.
We must see that if not by grace alone there was no reason for Jesus to be crucified. For grace to be authentic, it by definition must find its center in the humility of our affections for Jesus' life on our behalf.
Only by God's grace could we hear or converse with the Almighty. Only by His grace can we ever know the relationship with Him and each other. Grace Alone!
But because of His great love for us, God who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our transgressions-it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2: 4-5
To honor those who have sacrificed themselves for us, we say a humble, "thank you."
