Uncertain Times: Undeserved Grace

I just love Dr. David Jeremiah's devotionals.  I get them in email every morning and wanted to share this one.

turningpoint

So [Abraham] brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people.
Genesis 14:16

The notion of grace is so contrary to human reason that even Christians struggle with it. For instance, if we have been through a spiritual dry period in our life, it is hard to imagine God coming to our aid. Surely we are required to work our way back into His good graces before asking for His help. Such a notion is contrary to Scripture—God has proved himself faithful even to those who have been unfaithful to Him.

Lot was the brash, self-serving nephew of Abraham. There is little to find in his life that would commend him as a spiritual person who sought to please God. Yet even when his own choices resulted in his being threatened with captivity at best and death at worst, God rescued him. Lot was captured by a marauding army; and Abraham, whom Lot had previously slighted, risked his own life to save him. God's grace and faithfulness are constant: "If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny himself" (2 Timothy 2:13).

If you are in need of God's help in your life, ask for it on the basis of His undeserved grace, not your deserved judgment.

Common grace . . . reveals itself everywhere where human hearts are found to beat . . . and spreads its blessing upon these human hearts.
Abraham Kuyper
