Poured Out – Immeasurable Grace

Other people do give up on us when we mess up too much, but not God. His grace is immeasurable. His love surpasses understanding. He never runs out of blessing.

The Object Lesson – Lota Bowl

The Lota Bowl (purchase one here) is one of the simplest illusions you can learn to perform. It takes very little sleight of hand or practice to create a really compelling effect. Essentially you can fill the bowl with a liquid of your choosing, and repeatedly pour out ALL THE WATER. Each time you pour, it will appear the bowl is empty, but a few moments later, you will be able to repeat the effect with more water.

This illusion is perfect for teaching about Elijah & the widow’s never ending jar of oil, God’s daily provision during the Exodus, or in this case, the never-ending love and grace of God. As you teach about God pouring out his grace, pour the contents of jar out, holding it until it appears to be empty. Then, continue teaching about another time God blessed you. After a few moments (30 seconds or more), you will be able to “fully pour” more water out of the jar. You can easily repeat four to eight times during your teaching.

Bible Lesson – Never-ending Love & Grace

Saying that God’s love is as deep as the ocean short changes just how deep it really is. Any attempt to measure the goodness, the love, or the grace of God is going to fall short. Ephesians 2:7 tells us the riches of God’s grace are so big they can’t be measured. In Ephesians 3:18-19 Paul prays that we might know just how wide and long and high and deep God’s love is, but then points out that it is a love that surpasses understanding. Romans 5:20 tells us that no matter how much our sin increases, grace will increase even more.

Sometimes in our walk with Christ we might feel like we have used up God’s grace. We might feel like there isn’t enough love or blessing left for us. We believe this because every other relationship in our life works that way. Other people do give up on us when we mess up too much, but not God. His grace is immeasurable. His love surpasses understanding. He never runs out of blessing.
