Scripture of The Day

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (Ephesians 2:8)

By Ed Henderson (2015)

We just returned from visiting some friends on Labor Day and my wife and I were recounting on our trip home how blessed we were. As we drove home this song came on the radio. It was so appropriate. We could have so easily ended up in an early grave if it had not been for the grace of God. We could have both gone down wrong roads if not for the grace of God. Thank God Grace Won. Read and listen to the words of Grace Wins by Matthew West:

In my weakest moment I see you, shaking your head in disgrace
I can read the disappointment, Written all over your face
Here comes those whispers in my ear, Saying who do you think you are
Looks like you’re on your own from here, Cause grace could never reach that far
But, in the shadow of that shame, Beat down by all the blame, I hear you call my name sayin’ it’s not over
And my heart starts to beat, So loud now, drowning out the doubt, I’m down but I’m not out
There’s a war between guilt and grace, And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof, Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death’s defeat, Now I’m rising up in victory
Singing hallelujah, Grace wins every time
Words can’t describe the way it feels, When mercy floods a thirsty soul, A broken side begins to heal,
And grace returns what guilt has stole, And, in the shadow of that shame, Beat down by all the blame
I hear you call my name sayin’ it’s not over
And my heart starts to beat, So loud now, drowning out the doubt, I’m down but I’m not out
There’s a war between guilt and grace, And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof, Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death’s defeat, Now I’m rising up in victory
Singing hallelujah, Grace wins every time
For the prodigal son, grace wins
For the woman at the well, grace wins
For the blind man and the beggar, grace wins
For always and forever, grace wins
For the lost out on the street, grace wins
For the worst part of you and me, grace wins
For the thief on the cross, grace wins
For a world that is lost
There’s a war between guilt and grace, And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof, Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death’s defeat, Now I’m rising up in victory
Singing hallelujah, Grace wins every time, Every time
I’m living proof grace wins every time
