God's Grace Is Good


"Deeper than the ocean and wider than the sea, is the grace of the Savior for sinners like me; Sent from the Father, and it thrills my soul, Just to feel and to know, That His blood make me whole. His grace (Yes His grace) reaches me, yes, His grace (yes His grace) reaches me, (reaches me) And 'twill last through eternity; Now I'm under His control and I'm happy in my soul, Just to know (just to know) that His grace reaches me."

From the song; "His Grace Reaches Me" by Whitey Gleason 1964.

I really love the song "His Grace Reaches Me." The basses get to sing some rich "Ahs" up until the chorus and echo during it. The obvious message is that God's wonderful grace is free to "sinners like me" when I accept Jesus as my personal Savior... "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Jesus Christ" (Rom.3:23-24). in the previous verse (22) the apostle Paul says that this wonderful righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe... God's goodness is shown by His grace, and it even reaches down to you and I. There is a great and wonderful comfort that ought to fill us to the brim... Why? Because its sent form the Father, and it thrills my soul, just to feel and to know, that His blood made me whole... Man, through his own willingness, has often disobeyed God's laws, and is under judgement because of them. He was separated from God through these sins and lost without hope in the world. Then, the goodness of God extended grace, and in its magnificence, this grace reaches me. Paul said it much more eloquently than I can in Romans 5:8-10... "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath, through Him! For if, we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!" God's grace reaches me.... God is so good...

Have a great day....Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
