This is so *simple* and yet it spoke to me so powerfully just now. :)
TOOLS OF GRACE
by Preston Gillham
There I was, frustrated as I tried to put together a new bookshelf. The job required a special tool and none of the hardware stores carried it. Just as I was ready to give up, I saw it in the original box. The manufacturer had already provided all the tools I needed!
It's a shame, but many Christians live life like that, searching for the something they already have. I meet Christians all the time who are searching desperately for acceptance and forgiveness. But God's word is clear: If you are in Christ you are accepted and forgiven — completely — not because of anything you've done, but because of God's great love for you.
The Apostle Paul said it best when he explained, "we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing." By grace it's ours, provided by the Manufacturer Himself.
