It’s not easy being a follower of Jesus. We are asked to trust when things look impossible. We are asked to love those who hate us. We are asked to live holy lives when our selfishness keeps pulling the other way. But we do not give up.
When we can do nothing—God, showing His amazing love for us, gives us His grace. We are overwhelmed by His goodness. All we can do is give praise and gratitude and thankfulness. And that is all God asks for.
