How Do You Get God’s Grace? BY RICK WARREN Ministries daily devotional — MARCH 10, Thursday
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13 NIV)
Heaven will be amazing. You’ll be reunited with loved ones who know the Lord. You’re going to be rewarded for your faith. You’re going to be reassigned a position of work that you love to do. You’ll be released from pain, depression, despair, shame, and guilt.
You’ll rejoice and party for eternity!
Spending an eternity in Heaven is a free gift that you never need to earn. You can only get to Heaven by the grace of God. It’s the best deal anyone will every offer to you.
But there’s a catch. The Bible says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13 NIV).
To receive the grace of God, you have to call out to him. You have to accept the amazing grace of God.
If you were to find a gift on your table tomorrow morning and you left it there for the next year wrapped and unopened, that would be pretty dumb. A gift is worthless unless you actually accept it.
The same is true for God’s gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. It means nothing to you unless you accept it.
And God longs to give you the gift of his grace. The Bible says, “The Lord longs to be gracious to you” (Isaiah 30:18a).
God isn’t mad at you. He won’t reject you. The Bible says God is ready and willing to give you his grace and secure a future for you in Heaven.
