Radical

Jesus leads us into a place of radical grace where we are able to celebrate the hope of experiencing God’s glory. 
~Romans 5:2 (The Voice)

Grace is amazing.  Grace is unmerited.  Grace is about any positive adjective you can think of.  But grace is...radical?  I liked the scripture above, but decided I would look up the definition of radical to really understand it.  And to my surprise, it had nothing to do with surfing or skateboarding!  That is a joke.  A very un-radical joke...

The definition of radical as an adjective is: "Relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough."  Wow!  Grace IS radical.  Can you imagine anything more far-reaching or thorough than eternity?  Because we get eternity when we accept God's free gift of Grace!  

Dear Father, please help me to be aware at all times of how radical Your Grace is.  It is nothing I deserve or am rewarded for.  It is given out of love.  I ask this in Jesus' name, Amen!

Great stuff. I love that definition of radical. Much better than surfing or skateboarding. God Bless Michael.
