Falling from Grace


I got the Les Miserables soundtrack for my ipod last week, so I’ve been obsessively listening to it. What wonderful music!

In the song “Stars”, Javert uses the phrase “falling from grace”. For some reason, when I heard it a few days ago, it struck me how wrong that phrase is. I know it’s an idiom and I know what it means in the song, but the words literally just don’t make sense.

You CAN’T fall from grace. That’s the whole point of grace!! We got what we don’t deserve. Specifically, in the case of God’s grace, you can’t do anything to negate grace. It’s always there. That’s why it’s grace and not works.

Just my random thought for the day.
