One of my favorite words in the English language is the word ‘amazing’. It almost demands an exclamation mark at the end! It makes me think that whatever we are attaching that description to is well beyond what we thought it could be. For instance, our vacation was amazing! The band put on an amazing show! This new coffee flavor is amazing!
How about the amazing grace of God?! His grace is so far beyond what we could ever think or imagine. Once we’ve encountered His amazing grace…our lives are never the same. The grace of God is so incredibly complex and yet so very simple. We could speak a lifetime and not explain the complexity of His grace and yet when the Master of the Universe whispers to our heart His divine invitation to receive His grace in exchange for all of our sin all we need to say is simply, “yes”.
As His creation, you and I are made in His image. From The Passion Translation, Psalm 139:4 says, “I thank You, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything You do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly You know me, Lord!” There is that description again of being more than what we ever thought we could be…mysteriously complex…and yet so simple.
What does God say about you? You are amazing!
