When Do I Need Grace Most?

I desperately need grace when I am least aware of my need of it.

Grace devised the scheme of redemption: Justice never would; reason never could.

NO sinner would ever have sought his God but ‘by grace’.

The thickets of Eden would have proved Adam’s grave, had not grace called him out. Saul would have lived and died the haughty self-righteous persecutor had not grace laid him low. The thief would have continued breathing blasphemies had not grace arrested his tongue and turned it for glory.

“{Caesar’s words} ‘I came, I saw, I conquered,'” says Toplady, “may be inscribed by the Saviour on every monument of grace.”

{The Saviour can write:} “I came to the sinner; I looked upon him; and with a look of omnipotent love, I conquered.”

Oh, let us seek to realise our continual dependence on this grace every moment!

‘More grace! More grace!’ should be our continual cry. But the infinite supply is commensurate with the infinite need. The treasury of grace, though always emptying, is always full: the key of prayer which opens it is always at hand: and the almighty (distributor) of the blessings of grace is always waiting to the gracious.

The recorded promise never can be cancelled or reversed:

“My grace is sufficient for thee.”

The grace of God is the source of minor temporal as well as of higher spiritual blessings.

It accounts for the crumb of daily bread as well as for the crown of eternal glory. But even in regard to earthly mercies, never forget the channel of grace through Christ Jesus.

It is sweet thus to connect every (even the smallest & humblest) token of providential bounty with Calvary’s cross – to have the common blessings of life, stamped with the print of the nails. It makes them doubly precious to think this flows from Jesus.

Quoted from God’s Abundant Grace (Dwight L. Moody)
