Wasted Grace

Would God allow anything He gives to go to waste? You might think, “That’s absurd. God is so wise… yada, yada, yada…”

My Daily Bible Reading: 2 Chron. 19-24

“…as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” 1 Pet. 4:10

1 Peter 4:10 speaks of God’s grace as being multifaceted, or having many aspects, sides and characteristics to it. God’s grace comes…

• …to Melt us
• …to Correct us
• …to bring us to Repentance
• …to Forgive us
• …to Restore us
• …to Strengthen us
• …to Empower us
• …to Teach us

If we’re not careful, all this grace in its different forms will get wasted. Someone might say,

“Oh no, that’s all wrong. None of God’s grace is wasted.”

Really? How about when we trample underfoot the Blood of Jesus according to Hebrews 10:29 and all God’s grace goes down the drain? How about those who end up dying in their sins when they could have accepted God’s Love, but they rejected it, died, and God’s grace got wasted? You can’t tell me God’s doesn’t weep over His Wasted Grace.
