Have you ever stood out in a downpour?  Have you ever stood there and let the rain wash you as it drenches the earth?

The water falls so quickly that it is slamming to the ground. It falls so fast that it cannot be absorbed and it cannot drain away.  It swirls around your feet and pools on the ground.  It is so loud and powerful that it is nearly impossible to hear anything else.

I have a friend from college who used to love walking about after a rain shower.  He used to say that it felt like everything had been washed clean and in that moment everything was perfect again.

I don’t know if he knew it at the time or even now, but he perfectly described the grace that God showers on us if we humbly ask for it.

The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:14

Next time it pours down rain, go stand out in it. Feel the sting of the water against your skin and the rivulets of water running down your face and neck.  Do not shield yourself from it, but soak it in.  This is how we should treat the Lord’s grace.  It is a freely given gift.  He wants you to bathe in it to be cleansed and purified.
