Grace is not earned.
May 19, 2015
Many religions speak of grace as something that is earned and is either experienced in human form as a reward or in spirit form as a reward. Grace is never earned. It is simply given. The reality of God’s presence is not worked toward. It is not a goal. It is not an achievement. It isn’t something which is granted because it is requested. It simply is.
The reality of Presence is a grace. God’s presence in your life is not greater because you study scriptural text or attend some kind of spiritual gathering. That Presence is yours despite what you do, despite what happens to you on your journey. That grace is always there.
