James 1:17 NIV "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows"
The grace of God can be described in two words "free gift". Everything about the grace of God is simply "the gift that keeps on giving". Grace is always giving in every circumstance, it's a gift that never stops!
To understand the grace of God you have to understand that life is all a gift. Health is a gift, a promotion is a gift, a love one finding his way home is a gift, life is a gift. In James 1:17, I'm so glad it says "every GOOD GIFT" and every "PERFECT GIFT". Sickness isn’t included as a gift from God, a car accident isn’t a gift, although walking away without a scratch is a gift. Losing your job isn’t a gift, unless very soon after you get a better job with better pay and better opportunities, that’s a gift.
What's really great is that the Father doesn’t change, He's always "good" and His gifts are always "perfect", that’s good news. The scripture says that God is not like a "shifting shadow". I love that because a shadow is constantly changing second by second minute by minute day by day. His love for us is a gift that never shifts like a shadow. His provision for us is a gift that never shifts like a shadow.
Since Jesus is full of grace and truth, then Jesus is a gift. Our relationship with Him is a gift. His friendship with us is a gift. He is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving. That's great, great news to me. It's the nearly too good to be true news. So enjoy a life of gifts, God's grace that just keeps giving and giving and giving every day!
