In Touch Daily Devotional
by Dr. Charles Stanley


March 8-9, 2008 – The Power of Grace John 3:14-18 

            One of the most humbling aspects of God’s love is His desire for everyone to know Him personally. The same God who created the Universe—and who interacted with Moses, Abraham, and Paul—wants us to know Him intimately. 

            Yet so many ignore Him or look the other way, distracted by friends, family, celebrities, sports, careers, and the endless details of day-to-day life. But no matter how distant we may have been until now, the door is open to a relationship with the Lord. 

            First Timothy 2:4 says that God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Notice the writer doesn’t say God wants “some”—or a certain number—to know Him. No, the Lord wants everyone on earth to be saved. It’s not His desire that any perish; rather, He longs for all to know Him (2 Peter 3:9). And that includes you. 

            Unbelievers sometimes look at their sins and assume there’s no way God could grant them forgiveness. But the moment a person is willing to acknowledge his wrongdoing, the Lord is there to accept the sinner as His child. Regardless of what you’ve done, whom you’ve hurt, or where you’ve been in life, God is ready and willing to forgive you. 

            Even for those of us who have been Christians a long time, it’s humbling to reflect on God’s goodness. The same grace that saved us is available on every step of our faith journey. Each day, we can move forward, safe in the knowledge that no mistake can ever put us beyond the reach of God’s love for His children.
