It is often said that a truly despicable person has no “saving grace” about him. Indeed, myriads of people feel that they have fallen from grace. They believe that no one is able or willing to restore them to the position from which they have fallen. Yet grace is God’s ability to pick up the down and bring in the out. Grace is God’s way of redefining us by removing all of our disqualifying labels. In other words, we are what God says we are.
