Grace for Our Enemies
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you’ve grown up in the church, you’ve probably heard about the grace of God all your life. But what exactly is grace?
Imagine a father who finds out his son has been killed. He tracks down the murderer and then kills him. We call that vengeance.
Imagine instead that the boy’s father calls the police and the guilty party is arrested, tried, convicted, and punished. We call that justice.
Say that the father pleads with the judge that the guilty man’s life be spared. We call that mercy.
Now imagine that the father asks for custody of his son’s murderer. He takes the man into his home, adopts him, and loves him as his own son. It seems unthinkable, but that’s exactly what God has done for us. It’s called grace.
If you haven’t thanked God for His grace lately, there’s no better time than now.
