Just the Ticket
[ Ephesians 1:1 - 1:10 ] - hymn264 
 
In him we have ... the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. - Ephesians 1:7
When a police officer stopped a woman because her young daughter was riding in a car without the required booster seat, he could have written her a ticket for a traffic violation. Instead, he asked the mother and daughter to meet him at a nearby store where he personally paid for the needed car seat. The mother was going through a difficult time and could not afford to buy a seat.

 Although the woman should have received a fine for her misdemeanor, she walked away with a gift instead. Anyone who knows Christ has experienced something similar. All of us deserve a penalty for breaking God’s laws (Eccl.7:20). Yet, because of Jesus, we experience undeserved favor from God. This favor excuses us from the ultimate consequence for our sin, which is death and eternal separation from God (Rom.6:23). “In [Jesus] we have ... the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”(Eph.1:7).

 Some refer to grace as “love in action.” When the young mother experienced this, she later remarked, “I will be forever grateful! ... And as soon as I can afford it I will be paying it forward.” This grateful and big-hearted response to the officer’s gift is an inspiring example for those of us who have received the gift of God’s grace! - Jennifer Benson Schuldt

Dear Father, thank You for giving us what we don’t deserve. You have forgiven my sins and provided a way for me to be reconciled to You through the gift of Your Son. Help me to always be grateful for Your grace.
 
God’s gift is grace.

Ephesians 1:1-10

 [1] Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus:
 [2] Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
 [3] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
 [4] just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
 [5] having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
 [6] to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.
 [7] In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
 [8] which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,
 [9] having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,
 [10] that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth--in Him.
