Multiples of Grace - WFW

Blackboard_and_chalk copy

The law came along to multiply the trespass.  But where sin multiplied, grace multiplied even more, so that, just as sin reigned in death,  so also grace will reign through righteousness, resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

But then Law came in, [only] to expand and increase the trespass [making it more apparent and exciting opposition]. But where sin increased and abounded, grace (God's unmerited favor) has surpassed it and increased the more and superabounded,
So that, [just] as sin has reigned in death, [so] grace (His unearned and undeserved favor) might reign also through righteousness (right standing with God) which issues in eternal life through Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) our Lord.

Praising God that Karen is SPLASHIN' and SOAKIN' in GRACE! Thank You Lord for multiplying GRACE! How clever to see this on the chalkboard... erasing our sin and multiplying! Only Your grace, O Lord! It's so aMazing! May Your Grace outnumber our sins! Thank You Father, that through Jesus Christ, You have given us eternal life! Glory...hallelujah that GRACE will reign through righteousness!
Glory that each morning, we can clothe ourselves in the righteousness of Christ!

Lord, Your favor is unearned and undeserved, which makes it ever so much more... GLORIOUS GRACE!!! One drop at a time or one splash... how beautiful that grace abounds and surpasses that of our sins. Thank You Jesus Christ. You are the Anointed One! The Most Holy One... the Perfect Atonement and Your mercy abounds in Your Grace! I'm forever thankful... for You! I also give thanks for my sweet sister Karen and her creativity with chalk.

Multiply Your favor over Karen and her household with many blessings and so much LOVE to cover them completely so anything else is dim in comparison and easily forgotten or diminished.

Peace, love, prayers and hugs,
The Power of Your Love (today's WFW) Thanks for your fun splash last night... I came here when I saw you there but this was not yet here...

Grace - the totally unmerited favor of God. Is there anything better?

I like the image of righteousness reigning - overshadowing sin and death - standing firm unto eternal life.
