Awesomely abled

Having awesomely-abled kids is interesting. It’s difficult and yet so rewarding.

With the way they think? My kids deal in absolutes. “You did wrong so you are wrong”

As a mom, it’s my job to teach them those absolutes – but also of the grace.

Like in our walk with God. Yup. He definitely deals in absolutes. “You sin? You going to hell” type deal. But as I tell my kids? That’s where grace steps in.

Yes we sin – but you know what? God saw our sinful state..knew we weren’t gonna get anywhere close to worthy of heaven and sent a piece of Himself – to die for us.

So yes we fall short. Yes we don’t deserve heaven or Gods love. But that’s where grace (or really Jesus Christ) steps in. To give us love we don’t deserve because He loves us so.

How awesome is that?

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 4:12
