A New Day .. Abundantly Supplied…

February 20, 2013

“and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 1:14 New American Standard

God’s story begins everyday. It was written a long time ago and it is being written with your life in the script. His grace for you is more abundant than you can ever imagine. It is very real you know … this thing called grace. The world you live tries to show grace but it always reverts to a measurement of performance or a punishment for failure. The measure is always “you”. With God .. he is the measure of grace. Who He is and not who you are. He is well aware of who you are and yet He cannot help himself when it comes to His grace for you. The real life-change in your life is not the result of your careful plans and good intentioned efforts. You are never more alive than when you are trusting in .. walking in .. and resting in the love God has for you in Christ. The faith you need for today is in Christ. The faith you need to face today comes from the radical life-changing kindness of God’s grace for your life. It comes abundantly .. more than you could ever need .. For everything in your life .. every situation .. every relationship .. every problem .. every challenge .. and enough for you to stop , breathe , and give thanks. When you take hold of Christ, He isn’t going to let go. And today…? It only takes a moment…

“God is kind, but He is not soft. In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.” Romans 2:4 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
