Grace Abounding

"... But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more," {Romans 5:20}

God just pounded this verse onto my heart today.
Everywhere I looked, I couldn't see anything but the promise of his grace.

We love to look so good.
We love to have it all together.
We love to hate any contradiction to the above... any contradiciton that might prove what's true:
we are so bad, and we are falling to pieces.

Sucks to suck. Sucks to sin.
Sucks that we can't help it, and we can't fix it.

But where life is so disgustingly and hopelessly stained with vice,
grace relentlessly and abundantly washes it clean.

Give up your helpless acts.
Praise the Lord.
You can't do it, but His grace redeems.
