That’s Why it’s Called Grace

Redemption is an amazing thing. To have the sin, guilt, and shame of my past removed and loved regardless of any of that…it still blows me away

That’s Why It’s Called Grace
The story I want to tell you
Is all about redemption
About how God can take the things
That we’re afraid to mention
If you’re anything like me
You bottle up your secrets
You think you can deny it
If no one could see it
But I’ve learned a long, hard lesson
That, that’s not the way it works
Just because you say it doesn’t
Doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt
I found a lot of ways to hide
What was breaking my heart
But the things that I would hide in
Only ripped me more apart

It’s like the story of the woman
Jesus met at the well
It’s a story that many of us
Know all too well
She didn’t understand
Why Jesus would speak to her
Most saw her as unclean
But He touched her with His words
She knew her life was sinful
And tried to conceal the truth
But she quickly learned
That He already knew
And He offered her a gift
This thing called “living water”
And that’s when Jesus told her
“I am the Messiah, your Savior.”
Jesus loved her enough
To confront her with her sins
He kindled hope in her
And she lifted her chin
Jesus took her shame
And He offered her love
The kind that can only come
From the One up above

You see, I’ve lived this story
From beginning to end
I was the woman
Who couldn’t understand
Why Jesus would want
Anything to do with me
But that’s when I met Him
Where I was redeemed
I cried, “Why do you want me?
I can bring nothing to this place.”
His response was breathtaking
“That’s why it’s called grace.”
