Grace Junkie

I’ve had this nice design for a while, but all of a sudden as I looked at it today I started thinking. Out of no where what I had seen like a thousand times became a puzzle, I just couldn’t shake it, as a matter of fact I still cant. What is grace to begin with? From teachings and messages in church we’re taught that grace is “God’s undeserved favour”, “God’s ability for our inability”. As I answered that another question popped up in my head; What is a junkie? I quickly got up to get the dictionary meaning of the word; “A person with a compulsive habit or obsessive dependency on something”.. hmmm. This one had me quiet for a while because it suddenly hit me, If I had a compulsive habit or obsessive dependency on God I wouldn’t worry about anything. If I was truly a grace junkie I would be the happiest, most relaxed guy on earth, because lets face it God never fails. Things may not always go our expected way, or how we feel is best but it actually always goes the best way for us once its God’s way.

I realised if only we can trust God, not relying on our talents, connections, looks, good deeds, families etc and just submit totally, rely exclusively on God’s grace we would definitely be the light of the world as we have been called to be as believers. When you make that mistake, shake off the guilt and self pity, He doesn’t love you because your good, He love you before you even knew Him. He came and died even before you were born, He died and washed away the sins of the world even before the world accepted Him. You are the righteousness of God through Christ (2 Cor 5:21).

How much easier it would be when we realise that God can handle it all, and not just that He can but that He would love to handle it all. I now know that where I am now has nothing to do with my skills or good deeds but all to do with God’s unshakeable love and grace.

And as the design says, I pray to truly be a Grace Junkie. I pray we all get to that level of total dependence on the one sure foundation.
