“We believe that we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 15:11, NLT).

If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of grace, you know how wonderful it feels to escape punishment for something you did. My fifth grade teacher could have made a bit of naughtiness on my part public, making an example of me and giving me my just desserts, but he didn’t. I’ve never forgotten him or his kindness.

We are daily on the receiving end of the grace and kindness of our Lord Jesus. When I say we, I don’t mean only believers. Everyone is included in the sphere of his love—in him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28). Christ died for all and all are saved by his undeserved grace. For some, accepting and embracing his love is difficult and some may not, but he will never withdraw it and never stop loving those he created out of his love. Thank God for his infinite and all-inclusive grace!
