God’s Grace Is for Everybody
By Rick Warren
“The promise is not only for those people that live under the law of Moses. It is for anyone who lives with faith like Abraham” (Romans 4:16 ICB).
No matter who you are and no matter what you’ve done, God loves you and wants you to come home to him. He wants to shower his grace on you. He wants to throw a party for you when you return.
The Jewish people, the nation of Israel, lived under the Law of Moses in the Old Testament. This verse is saying that God’s grace is available not just to Jews who lived under the Law of Moses. It is available to everybody with faith.
That’s amazing news! God’s grace is not just for Jewish people. It’s for all of us. All of us can come to God in the same way: through faith in the grace of God through his Son, Jesus Christ.
Does “everybody” include short people? Yes. Does it mean rich people and poor people? Yes. Does it include politicians and blue-collar workers? Yes. Does it include people from every ethnic background? Yes. Does it mean people from every country in the world? Yes!
It means everybody. Everybody! God’s grace is available to you.
You can’t understand what it means to have a relationship with God without understanding grace. Without grace, you don’t have any relationship with God. It is the heart of Christianity. It is the heart of following Christ and being a believer. Remember, no matter what you’ve done and no matter who you are, God’s grace is available to you.
