Everybody, even the worst stinker on earth, is somebody for whom Christ died.
Robert F. Capon, Kingdom, Grace, Judgment
One of the best things about grace and the God who provides it is that I got in on the deal. One of the hardest things about grace and the God who provides it is who else gets in.
It’s selfish for me to accept and relish in God’s amazing grace, but have concerns about who else gets the same pleasure. The thought that I am being critical and judgemental of who God shares His grace with is no different than the attitude of the Pharisee’s of Jesus’ day.
The heart of God is to rejoice with excitement and joy when I hear of someone who I would deem as “unworthy” of God’s grace, receiving and believing! When I do this I am joining in the atmosphere of Heaven and actually answering Jesus’ prayer of Heaven on Earth!
Be like Jesus, love everyone.
Be like the servants in the parables, tell the undeserving.
Be like the Father, prepare rooms for all.
