It is through the grace of God that we receive eternal life. We cannot fully understand grace. Grace is an undeserved gift of life from God to man. How fortunate we are to have such a loving God. "Just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord & Savior" (Romans 5:21). I pray to see my Uncle Phil again in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. I lift up heartfelt prayers for His comfort, peace, & eternal life for ALL our family. Loving God, I do praise You and thank You for Your gift of grace. You have compassion on us, no matter how undeserving we may be. Thank you for this reassurance. Amen.
