Grace vs. Patience

God’s grace “superabounds(Romans 5:15), “superexceeds(Romans 5:20),  and “overwhelms,” (1 Timothy 1:14). His patience, however, is limited (1 Peter 3:20).

Want evidence? Read the story of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah, Moses, Saul, Jonah, and countless others (Heck, read the whole book of Revelation!).

What’s it all mean to us today? Perhaps at least this: God can’t lose us, since Christ died for us, but we can lose Him if we become stubborn and rebellious, and remain that way (Romans 1:16-32).

I’d much rather live in the  Father’s superabounding, superexceeding, overwhelming grace, wouldn’t you?

Blessings and joy in the journey.
