Hello blessed child of God, I hope you’re rocking it in The Lord.
Are you already tired of me talking about grace? I hope not because today we’re going to discuss a little more about grace as we comment on the song ” Scandal of Grace” by Hillsong United.

Let’s be honest. God’s grace is scandalous. It defies all logical reasoning.
If you look at the story of the Israelites from the moment God took them away from Egypt althrough The Old Testament, you’ll notice the same pattern.
God would save them, but at the very first occasion to sin, they would choose sin and abandon God.
They would go after idols, they would practice exactly what God told them not to do. (As we so often do)
But every time it backfired and caused enormous problems to them (famine, being defeated by their enemies, oppression etc.) they would turn to God to ask for help. And what would God do?
Every single time He came to rescue them.
And what did they do afterwards ? They served God for sometime and then went back to their idols and sinful patterns.
Judges 2:16‭-‬19 MSG

But then God raised up judges who saved them from their plunderers. But they wouldn’t listen to their judges; they prostituted themselves to other gods—worshiped them! They lost no time leaving the road walked by their parents, the road of obedience to God ’s commands. They refused to have anything to do with it. When God was setting up judges for them, he would be right there with the judge: He would save them from their enemies’ oppression as long as the judge was alive, for God was moved to compassion when he heard their groaning because of those who afflicted and beat them. But when the judge died, the people went right back to their old ways—but even worse than their parents!—running after other gods, serving and worshiping them. Stubborn as mules, they didn’t drop a single evil practice.

Is this not scandalous that even though God knew they would turn away from Him everytime He still helped them?
Is it not scandalous to think that though they chose idols for so many years, and killed His prophets, God chose to send His Only Son to die not only for the sins of Israel but for the sins of all of us?
How can God show grace to people who have done nothing but disappointing and disobeying Him?
How can God show grace to me? How can God show grace to you? How can God show grace to this person who spent all their life hurting you? How?
Who is This One who is able to foresee that though I have repented today I will sin again tomorrow, but who doesn’t let that stop Him from forgiving my sins everytime I repent?
God’s grace is indeed scandalous. Impossible to understand with our human minds.
Is it not scandalous for God to let a perfectly innocent Lamb die on The Cross for sins that He didn’t even commit but that I committed, that you committed, that we all committed?
Isaiah 53:3‭-‬9 NLT

He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on Him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses He carried; it was our sorrows that weighed Him down. And we thought His troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for His own sins! But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet The Lord laid on Him the sins of us all. He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet He never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, He did not open His mouth. Unjustly condemned, he was led away. No one cared that He died without descendants, that His life was cut short in midstream. But He was struck down for the rebellion of my people. He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But He was buried like a criminal; He was put in a rich man’s grave.

That’s how God’s grace is.
1 Corinthians 1:25 NIV

For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

How can you explain such a wonderful grace? God is faithful to His promises. He promised Abraham that He would make him the father of many nations, and indeed God never let Israel down, because of His promise to Abraham. He keeps His promises.
Genesis 17:7‭-‬8 NLT
“I will confirm my covenant with you and your descendants after you, from generation to generation. This is the everlasting covenant: I will always be your God and the God of your descendants after you. And I will give the entire land of Canaan, where you now live as a foreigner, to you and your descendants. It will be their possession forever, and I will be their God.”
In the same way He promised that if we believed in The Name of His Son we would have eternal life, that if we confess our sins He will forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousnessness. He promised, and though it may be difficult to grasp for you, God will not cancel His promises. He is faithful.


  1. Has there ever been a period in your life where though God kept helping you, you kept rebelling against Him?
  2. If you answered yes to the previous question, ask God to forgive you and to help you obey Him consistently.
  3. Thank God for His faithfulness and wonderful grace towards you.


Father Lord God Almighty, I thank You so much because though I am not perfect and though I still struggle with sin and rebellion, You forgive me. May this grow a deep desire in my heart to live in obedience to The One who is always faithful to forgive my sins and to save me, in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.
