Limitless Grace

For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. ( John 1:17)

   Businesses in the U.S. offer special deals on items that say, "Limited time only," or "limit of two to a customer," or "while the supply lasts."  There seems to be limits placed on everything.  Highways have speed limits and newspapers have deadlines.  Products bought and sold have limited time warranties. 

   There is one area where a "no limit" sign is posted.  There are no limits to the grace of God.  He offers us "limitless grace."  The world seeks to pour cold water on the fires of grace and truth, but God keeps the embers of grace smoldering.

   When Christ died to provide us with grace and truth, he wrote "teleo" -- over our sins meaning they are paid in full.  That is what Jesus meant where he said, "teleo -- it is finished."

   Because of God's matchless grace the Apostle Paul could write, "There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus."  (Romans 5:1)  If you are burdened down with sins, take them to Jesus and leave them at the foot of the cross.  He will extend his "limitless grace" to you.
