God’s grace has overwritten our sin. Let this wonderful news sink in. Grace restores our relationship with God, and frees us to live the life Jesus offers. His grace allows us to face our past, to confess our sins, and to repent and lead in a new way today. It frees us to apologize to those we have hurt, and guides us as we make amends. How is God’s grace transforming you as a leader?
God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. —Romans 5:20-21 NLT
Prayer: God, may Your grace rule in our hearts and heads, and transform our hands and habits, so that we lead like Jesus, in whose name we pray, amen.
