I remember there was a year or two as a child that I used to sit in church and think about sin and death. I would ask forgiveness for all the unnamed sins I’d committed without knowing it and sometimes I would accidently think something wrong or even utter a bad word in my head and immediately ask forgiveness and wonder if I would be condemned by God if I said one of those bad words right before dying in a car crash. I think I understood forgiveness but I didn’t understand grace very well. Look at Ephesians 1:3-14. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing, chosen before creation to be holy and blameless. We have been adopted by God as sons and daughters, given complete access to His glorious grace, redemption through his blood, forgiveness, and even wisdom and understanding. We have been given the Holy Spirit God promised us which GUARANTEES our inheritance. The grace of God is HUGE! Way bigger than my worries and fears and concerns. Way bigger than my legalistic attempts to earn forgiveness. God has made incredible promises to those who believe and accept Christ as their Savior.
