S.A.N.S. Episode 286: Call It Grace

Despite how much I listen to and search for new Christian music, there always seems to be an artist each week that I stumble upon. This usually occurs when I’m trying to find a song title on You Tube that matches the theme of my daily devotional. Such is the cause for the Christian band Unspoken. This group is comprised of Chad Mattson, Jon Lowry, and Ariel Munoz. While looking for a sound about grace, Call It Grace by Unspoken was one of the first songs that popped up.

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and[b]show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may [c]pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me! – 2 Corinthians 12:9.

Grace is one of those theological terms that seminary students tend to over analyze. I prefer the acronym God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense. Rather than ramble on about Greek and Hebrews words on this topic, Unspoken simply calls it grace. In the above passage, the apostle Paul writes about grace during a difficult period in his life. Despite fighting through a painful physical condition, Paul came to realize that his weak state opened the door for Jesus to make him strong once again.
