God's Grace: One Size Fits All

By: Lee Larsen

When you are shopping for clothes online and you see the term, "One size fits all", doesn't this immediately bring up several emotions such as worry, disappointment and doubt? The "one size fits all" clothing usually looks like a parachute on you or it will be so tight that every flaw in your God-created body will be visible to the whole world!

When it comes to God's grace, one size fits all! You see, to God we were all created in His image and He loves each one of us the exact same amount. There are no favorites when it comes to His children. Is that a guarantee that we all will be together with Him in Heaven? He makes it perfectly clear that we will not be. Why? Because while God loves each one of us the same, He gave us a free will. If we choose not to believe in Him: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (three in one), we are lost and separated from Him.

God's grace comes to us through His word and through His Son. It is through God's grace that He sends the Holy Spirit to give us the power to fight off the sins of this world and the will to witness to others about His glory! 

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
— Ephesians 2:8-9
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.
— John 3:16-17
This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
— 1 Timothy 2:3-5

God's grace is equally given to all people, but what we do with it is up to us. Share this message through your words and actions. Encourage others to accept this free and precious gift from God. After all, God's grace is one size that fits all!
