“…. The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair.”
When I first heard those words, listening to “Be My Escape” by Relient K, it made me stop and think. How often do we complain that life isn’t fair without thinking about what a fair life would really look like? If everything was perfectly fair, exactly to the letter of the law, you and I would still be captives to the whims of our sin nature. We would have no way out, and no hope for escaping an eternity in hell. Our lives would be completely empty… and we would deserve it. Isn’t God’s grace absolutely astounding? Life’s not fair! Instead of mumbling it under our breaths, why don’t we shout it from the rooftops? I’m not getting what I deserve… I’m getting so much more! God’s love for me outweighs everything I’ve done and makes me His son! I am free from sin, I have a purpose! Praise God that grace is completely, totally, beautifully unfair!
