Yesterday, I heard one of the most powerful sermons I’ve heard in a long time.  The power wasn’t in the presentation style nor in the energy or tone of the preacher, the power was in the message he delivered.  One point he made really stuck with me throughout the day that just kept me feeling good all day.  Most of us have heard (and can quote) Romans 3:23, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” and that is where the recitation usually ends.  But, and this but is big, while it’s the end of the verse, it is not the end of the sentence.  Verse 24 continues the thought, “and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”  [emphasis mine}

yvar gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”); document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”)); try { var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-12356560-1”); pageTracker._trackPageview(); } catch(err) {}
He gave freely.

Grace and peace to you.
