Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Gratitude for Grace
by Charles R. Swindoll

For the grace of God has appeared; bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age. Titus 2:11–12

Thank You, dear Lord, for the beautiful way You teach us. Thank You for Your patience when we fail. Thank You for Your understanding in the midst of all our own confusion. Thank You for reaching down to us when we would never have reached up to You. Thank You for stopping us when we were running in the wrong direction, for setting the hounds of heaven after us. Thank You especially for Your grace. For by grace we have been saved through faith; and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. What a great reminder.

Thank You, dear God, for being tough with us when we needed it, for disciplining us so that we would walk worthy of the calling. How grateful we are that You have promised us a heavenly home free of guilt and shame and sin and sorrow and death. We look forward to eternity with You, with our Savior whom having not seen, we love; in whom, though now we see Him not, yet believing, we rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.

In the great name of Jesus we thank You. Amen.
