His name is Jesus. Paul’s oblique reference becomes immediately obvious. Only Jesus could bring salvation. Only Jesus’ example could instruct us to deny godlessness and embrace righteousness. So why call Him grace? Grace is a free, undeserved gift. But this man is a gift, a free undeserved gift from God. For we could not have earned this gift, and when we received it, we killed it. We have done everything possible to tell God we don’t want His help. We still do.
So what could God do? He raised His Son from the dead. He brought Jesus, who had done nothing to deserve death, into a life that cannot be killed. Why?
Because if God is infinite, and God is love, then God’s love is infinite. He sent His Son because He loves us. He raised His Son because He loves us. He raises you because He loves and there is no exhausting that love.
All of that to encourage us to holy living. Because He loves us into His presence. He wants to love us for eternity, where even then His infinite love cannot be expended.
May God bless you today!
