GOD-TRACKING BEGINS WITH GRACE
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
I was sad when I heard about the passing of Billy Graham. Graham was one of the most prolific evangelists of our time. He leaves a great legacy behind of millions of lives touched and changed by the grace of God.
One of the stories Billy Graham shared, is the time when he was stopped for speeding by a local police officer. He had inadvertently exceeded the state speed limit by 10 miles per hour. The officer promptly gave the preacher a $10 traffic ticket, one dollar for every mile he exceeded the speed limit, and instructed him to attend court when he was summoned. At court the judged asked Billy Graham how he pleaded. “Guilty, your honour,” replied Graham. As he spoke the judge recognised the defendant as Billy Graham, the great evangelist of the 20th century. “Mr Graham,” he said, “you have been found guilty of breaking the law and will need to pay the fine. However, I choose to pay it for you, myself.” With that the judged came down from his bench, drew a $10 bill from his wallet and handed it to the guilty man to pay the price for his crime. “That’s grace,” said Billy Graham.
Grace is God’s doing.
All of us are guilty of missing God’s mark of perfect goodness. We have violated his laws and exceeded his moral limits. God is good and requires that we meet his standards of goodness. But that’s impossible for us, because of sin.
“How do you plead,” asks the Judge. “Guilty, your honour.”
“The wages of sin is death. Therefore, you are sentence for your crime.” At this point the Eternal Judge steps down from his celestial throne and becomes like the ones who violated his law. God, the sovereign Judge, loved you so much that he gave his one and only Son that if you believe in him you will not perish but have eternal life. That’s grace.
God-tracking is begins with grace.
DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
If you wish to know the grace of God and give your life to Christ, please pray with me…
“Dear God, I admit that I have missed the mark of your goodness. I was born into sin and am guilty of violating your limits. I confess my sin, in Jesus’ name. Thank you for your grace in sending Jesus to pay the price for my crime. I accept your grace and put my faith in the work of Jesus on the cross. I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and call him Lord. I give my life to you, O Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
