Scripture for the Day (September 8, 2015)

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

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

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:17)

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
