Grace Like Rain

This weekend's sermon topic was about "Grace" and our worship team played "Grace Like Rain" by Todd Agnew as our offering song. The song mixes the traditional hymn "Amazing Grace" with a powerful chorus written by Agnew.

Provided our worship team didn't practice this week (that's another story) they hit a home run during this song. The Holy Spirit was upon the team and it turned out to be a very moving song to play.

I listened to Pastor Mike's sermon about grace and one comment he made that really struck a chord with me was, "God liberally give us grace." Now before all the legalistic theologians respond to this post, let me clarify that he was saying that no matter where you were in life, God's grace is still good enough for you. You could be a murderer, a rapist, a slanderer, or whatever.

At the second service as we finished Grace Like Rain, we walked out into the lobby of the school and the sky opened up and poured out a beautiful rain over us. All I could think about was God liberally raining down His grace on us.

Have mercy on me a sinner.
