Grace – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace.

By existing in this world we are bound to suffer, but God offers a remedy – Grace through His son Jesus Christ. Accept His gift each day and ask Him to pour it over you when you suffer.

Reference:

The God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory through Christ [Jesus] will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you after you have suffered a little.
