GRACE

Romans 3:24 The free gift of God’s grace makes us right with him.

I’m the first one to admit it. I didn’t deserve to win. My friend had a laser tag birthday party. That is where you wear a special vest and carry special guns. There is an obstacle course that you can run through.  The goal is to accumulate points based on how many people you shoot with your laser gun. You don’t want to get hit because that takes away from your total score.

I played well. I got a lot of shots in. But I took a lot of hits! I took so many hits that I am sure it is not possible that I won the game, but I did! I think there was a computer glitch. But they said I won so I got a prize for the highest score. I didn’t deserve that prize. That is GRACE!

Romans 3:24 says, "The free gift of God’s grace makes us right with him."

GRACE is getting something that we don’t deserve. Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for our sin, not his. That is GRACE! Our sin makes us an enemy of God because he is perfect, without sin. Even though Jesus never sinned he took the punishment for our sin so we could be made right with God. GRACE is a gift that God gives to us.

I’m pretty happy that I won that prize for laser tag, even if I didn’t deserve it!
