Expired

Yesterday, I went online to pay our health insurance and I read the following: “Your grace period has expired, please call customer service to update your account.”

Your grace period has expired. 

Those words had a bitter, sour taste in my mouth.  What do you mean expired?  I understand how in a situation like this, the grace can’t go on forever, we need to be responsible with our actions, but oh, how grateful I am that when it comes to Jesus, our grace period never, ever expires!  Not ever.

“And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”
John 1:16 (ESV)
“Hope in the Lord;
      for with the Lord there is unfailing love.
      His redemption overflows.”
Psalm 130:7 (NLT)

PS:  I learned this morning that “your grace period has expired” does not mean your health insurance has expired…thank goodness!
