“My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him, all good things – trout as well as eternal salvation – came by grace; and grace comes by art; and art does not come easy.”
While we rightly view grace as a free gift, grace always costs someone something.
As Norman said, grace comes by art… but art costs the artist years of practice and preparation.
Grace releases an indebted person from their debt… but costs the lender the debt forgiven.
Grace sets us free from sin and death… but cost Jesus the pain, humiliation, and death of the Cross.
The grace God offers cost us nothing, but cost Jesus everything.
But, He did it all because He wants to spend eternity with you.
THAT is a priceless grace worth sharing.
