Can I lose God's grace?
You can't do anything for God to love you any more or any less than He does right now. He loves you as much right now as He has ever loved you. He loves you as much right now as He ever will. God fully loves you, always has fully loved you and will always fully love you. And there's nothing you can do about it.
When you hate God, He still loves you.
When you cheat on those you love the most, God fully loves you.
Greedily hoard your money and refuse to offer help to those in need. God loves you.
Fly off the handle and lose your temper. God loves you.
Gossip about as many people as you can. God loves you.
Humiliate as many people as possible on your way to the top. God fully loves you in your selfishness.
Make disproving Jesus your life goal. God will love you as you discredit His name.
God is not surprised or turned off by any circumstance or action. Grace does not change because God does not change.
In your moments of greatest depravity, God offers His greatest grace. God meets you at the bottom of your mess. When you are ready to turn off the porn but can’t, when you have to have another drink, or when wish you could stop hiding behind a lie, grace is there to meet you (Romans 5:8).
Scary isn't it? What do you do about that? You can't do anything about it. It just is. God is love. He always has been gracious, always will be gracious, it is a part of His unchanging character. Grace cannot be earned nor can it be altered. Grace is not something we've asked for. It's simply been given to us.
God is not surprised or turned off by any circumstance or action. Grace does not change because God does not change. Grace fully loves you right now. God fully loves you right now.
Nothing you do in your life can add or take away God's love. You cannot lose it. And if you can't lose God's love, what is there to lose? Why not live like it?
