Grace has ended!

"Your grace period has finished!"
We speak about a period of Grace in certain aspects of life. Businesses offer some grace to customers, while new employees are given a little grace to find their feet in a new job. However, there comes a time when the 'period of Grace' finishes and this can be a scary moment for those on the receiving end. We wonder if this allows us any room for mistakes or genuine errors?

Can you imagine if God acted like this with us? Where would we be if God's grace had a time limit on it? What if God said to us,
"Delme, I am giving you 6 months grace. But, after that time period you need to be perfect! No more mistakes from you!"

Wow, that would be scary wouldn't? Thankfully, he doesn't operate like that and we are given his Unconditional grace and love.

Romans 5:15 - "But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ."

Living in Grace
