You can’t receive grace with a clenched fist

You can’t receive grace with a clenched fist

You can’t receive grace with a clenched fist. Your hands must first be open.

Just think about it for a second.  You can’t expect someone to forgive you if you are full of anger.  Would you feel like forgiving someone who was screaming at you with some sort of sarcastic or hostile apology that was full of excuses?

To truly be sorry and willing to put the past behind you, humility must be in your heart.  Maybe the hardest part of this forgiveness thing is admitting wrong and forgiving yourself. Just do it.  There’s nothing better than getting that burden of anger off your back and receiving grace and forgiveness from those whom you have wronged.

Did I mention that God’s grace is a free gift and there for the taking right now?  Just open your heart and your hands and accept the blessing from above.

James 4:6 God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

Speak Your Mind
