Rest in grace

-from a book review in Christianity Today magazine...

"We do not have to compete for grace, mine for it, earn it, or pay for it. It does not come and go. We can only rest in grace, thus becoming agents of grace. When we rest from our frantic labor, we are being asked to trust another that everything is going to be okay. We don't have to save ourselves; we are being saved. We do not have to fret and flail and snatch. We are being cared for."

This is very comforting. I always feel as if I am not "doing" enough as if I could "do" anything to earn even an ounce of salvation. Grace is just that, grace. We can rest in His grace. It's ok. God knows how needy we really are. Sometimes we just need to be and not "do."
