"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

 

'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.' (Luke 2:13-14).

 

Max Lucado says in his book, "In The Grip of Grace," the following:

 

WHAT A GOD!

 

Ponder the achievement of God.

 

He doesn't condone our sin, nor does he compromise his standard.

 

He doesn't ignore our rebellion, nor does he relax his demands.

 

Rather than dismiss our sin, he assumes our sin and, incredibly, sentences himself.

 

God's holiness is honored. Our sin is punished...and we are redeemed.

 

God does what we cannot do so we can be what we dare not dream: perfect before God.

 

"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.” (2 Cor. 8:9).

 

Yes, it is all of grace, the unmerited favor, undeserved blessing, that sinners can reach out with the empty hand of faith and received freely the gift of salvation.

By God's Grace, In His Love and Mercy,
