Some days are especially challenging for my adult grandson, who has a developmental disorder. On one of those rough days he asked me to find a cord for a cross so he could wear it as a necklace.
His words that followed touched my heart: “I’m a Christian, Grandma, even if I make mistakes sometimes.”
What truth! And what faith! We don’t earn being a Christian. It is God’s free gift.
We cannot earn it. And our mistakes cannot take it away.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8
