Amazing Grace is a hymn that is sung by many, but only fully understood by some. Have you meditated on the grace that is being sung about in this hymn?
What Jesus did through the Incarnation, out of his grace and unconditional love for all of us, is beyond our comprehension. Jesus was willing to be born a human baby for a chance at a relationship with us.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:9-10,14
Experiencing that level of love always leaves me in awe and brings me gratitude knowing that God loves us all so much! We are made in his image. Why wouldn’t we want to unconditionally love others and give them the grace that is shown to us?
As you celebrate the birth of our Savior this month, may you reflect on the amazing grace he demonstrated to you and to all people.
Our graceful and loving Father in heaven, thank you for loving us. Thank you that we have a glimpse of what is in store for us by your grace. Help us love others as you do and be a reflection of your grace to those around us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
