Grace that Flows




After reading Hebrews 2:9-10:

9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.

Sometimes, oh my soul, you view the grace of God as solely what flows to you and the Body of Christ. But this is only part of the flow. The first part, actually planned from eternity, was that grace would be bestowed on Jesus the Son of God, so that He might faithfully become the “Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

By the Grace of God the Christ tasted death
for everyone, same mercy extends
now to those who bow in reverence
to the Author whose testaments are lettered love.

Grace is more than a point flowing from pens,
the act of Atonement is where it began,
so the Cross, and the grave, and Christ’s Resurrection
build a bridge to our hearts, to where mercy extends.

The sufferings of the Son Man,
sign of sin made null by the Second Adam.
All that flows afterwards is this favor to us!
Our works? The brandishing of His grace in love!
