Grace is not an idea.
It’s not a concept.
It’s not a principle.
Grace is more a person than a principle.
The reason grace has been abused is because we’ve left it merely as a principle and as long as grace is a concept, a principle, an idea, it’s easily abused and misused. But when you look into the eyes of Grace and you meet Grace and when you embrace Grace and you see the nail prints in Grace’s hands and you see the fire in His eyes and His hair like wool and you feel His love, you feel His relentless love for you that never ends and never stops; I’m telling you, it will not motivate you to sin. It will motivate you to righteousness.Judah Smith (via hislivingpoetry)
