Rejection lies at the root of so many flaws in our lives. When people are rejected all the worst traits surface. Acceptance lies at the root of most of our progress and development.
Grace favors people and accepts them when they have done nothing to merit favor, even when they have behaved badly and done things to earn disfavor!
Grace ‘makes us’ acceptable and therfore highly favored by God. This means we are blessed, protected, given opportunities when all around us is a mess.
The grace of God is His glory. To bless the unblessed, to favor the disfavored, to accept the rejected – this is the glory of God.
