Faith, favour, inclusion and blessing occurs not because of our best efforts but because of his kindness. Where the world would tell us to work hard and earn our rewards, grace doesn’t wait for us to get our life together.
Poor choices and bad circumstances can lead us into difficulty. Family breakdown and personal isolation often occur but God doesn’t leave us there. God is committed to us as a father to a son and won’t let us go.
God blesses the world by choosing one people from all the peoples and making them the carriers of the promise and the power needed to redeem the world.
