“Grace arrives with its own instruction: run away from anything that leads us away from God; abandon the lusts and passions of this world; live life now in this age with awareness and self-control, doing the right thing and keeping yourselves holy.” (Titus 2: 12, the Voice Translation)
Grace comes with merciful love. It is the dawning of God’s kindness awakening us to peace, joy, comfort, a realization of His healing presence. This powerful and active gift of goodness comes without our effort. Grace is described as a divine influence and often as the unmerited favor of God.
And while we don’t have to earn grace, we must surely and naturally follow the instruction that comes with its arrival. When we feel the touch of the Spirit, receive and appreciate this tender touch and know its divine Source, we can surely stay loyal to what we have felt.
We must keep this grace in our hearts. We must not allow the world or our egos to make us forget, to lead us away from the thoughts and behavior that honor that grace and keep its blessings alive to us, and to those we encounter.
It is about awareness. It is about remembering that this powerful touch of God’s Love continues to be ours. And as we let God guide us, listen to those angel voices within, we can express this grace in the world. This is gratitude. This is praise. This is a life of gentle power.
