“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

Quiet grace

Quiet grace—this is what we see in nature. Do we deserve all its abundance? No, not in the least. Yet it just keeps coming to us. We harvest it or try to destroy it, but it comes right back in full force. Quietly it preaches to us. It communicates through its delight-filled sights and sounds and smells that its Creator is a God of grace who loves this world of perverse children.

Quiet grace—between mother and child; an emblem of what God wants to be with us.

Quiet grace—grace that steals upon emerging faith. If you need grace, then you will believe. When you are tired of an existence without forgiveness, faith springs forth. Thus grace can afford to be quiet; quietly awaiting the inevitable tired sinner.

Faith is not a liability; neither is it a crutch for weaklings, as the world may think. It is a gift to every needy soul who has had enough of graceless life, a source of joy that the world can’t have. “If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1Jn. 1:7). “By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another.” (Jn. 13:35).

“They joy before Thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.” (Is. 9:3).
