God's arms are always open to us, even when our hearts are far from him. He extends grace upon grace but we can compare ourselves with people around us and miss the very thing that God has for us!
God's grace is truly amazing and he can turn any situation around. Outside of Christ, there is no hope! God gracefully gives us this gift of grace. Because of his grace, this moves us to do good works for his glory, but what does God offer us through His grace?
For us to live in obedience to God we need a proper understanding of this grace that he so generously pours out for us. As Matthew Henry says - Grace in the soul is new life. As death locks up the senses and seals up all the powers, the faculties, and anything that is good. Grace unlocks, opens all and enlarges the soul!

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." - John 1:5
GRACE is unmerited favour... it's getting what we don't deserve & God is God of grace - we cannot earn his love or salvation we just accept the free gift... but we know, getting to that place of acceptance can be challenging!
