In a recent study of God’s grace from my Pastor, my love for my sweet Savior, Jesus Christ was deepened. God’s grace is so deep and so wide. There are none so bad that they can’t be saved nor is there any so good that they don’t need saving.
There was a great truth in a quote I heard recently that said, “There is more love in God’s heart than there will ever be sin in your heart.” What a glorious thought! I wanted to share with you our true identity in Christ as told to us throughout Scripture:
