wild grace

by Misty Dawn

just when we think we have been carried far enough,

& that God has done for us all that we could imagine & more,

grace shatters the mold again.

Grace sanctifies.


too wild to let us stay in love with unrighteousness. too free to leave us in slavery to sin. too untamed to let our lusts go unconquered.

Grace’s power is too uninhibited to not unleash us for the happiness of holiness.

so it is that we “grow in the grace & knowledge of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ” & live “not under law but under Grace.”

Grace abounds not through our continuing in sin, but through our Spirit-empowered, ongoing liberation. Grace is too strong to leave us passive, too potent to let us wallow in the mire of our sins & weaknesses. “My grace is sufficient for you,” says Jesus, “for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
