Easy GraceA Chapter by Ethan Paz
A personal testimony about my life as of recent.
16 September 2010
I as of late have been shown by God’s grace how forgetful I am of God’s love for me by living a works, orientated life. I tricked myself by trying to be more dependent on Jesus Christ through meaningful prayer, deeper devotions, and a work mentality to appease God, but all was done in the cause of easing my conscience. In conclusion, I was living life on my own and I was never satisfied with what I could accomplish. I continually attempted to be in that deep spiritual state where I could finally say, “All I have is Christ,” but I was only fooling myself. Though I might have deceived myself before in saying, “All I have is Christ” in the past, I can now state with confidence that “Jesus is my life,” for I know I have a personal relationship with Him because of God’s grace. I say this for God was revealing His love daily to me by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ His Son which I had undoubtedly forgotten. God’s grace was overwhelming me by the remembrance that His love for me is greater than the condemnation that I so justly deserve. I was also greatly encouraged that God could not love me even more nor could He ever love me even less. Instead of worrying about what I have to do or what I didn’t do, I will soak myself with God’s love for me. Here at the cross I find God’s grace and His love for me.
