By Grace

The words come back to me and I find myself singing them in my mind…
Matthew West has written a song that I hear quite often on the radio. 
Here is a sample of the lyrics:
There’s a war between guilt and grace

And they’re fighting for a sacred space

But I’m living proof

Grace wins every time

No more lying down in death’s defeat

Now I’m rising up in victory

Singing hallelujah

Grace wins every time. 
Ephesians 2:8-9 states:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 
Have you ever felt that there was a conflict going on inside you concerning guilt and its relationship to forgiveness?
There may be someone you know who feels so guilty about a situation they can’t seem to grasp the fact that God is willing to forgive them. 

The song lyrics describe it as a “sacred space.”

This forgiveness—our salvation and redemption—is a gift from God. There is nothing we can do to earn it. Instead, we must only accept it. 

As believers in the world, each one of us is living proof that grace is victorious through the sacrifice of Jesus.
