Without grace I would have no hope. Though much of our culture has been suckered into thinking that Christ was actually born on December twenty-fifth, the reality of the fact that He was born and that He did die, as a sacrifice in our stead, is the foundation on which wholeness, peace, and meaning in my life are built. While I continue to stumble and fall on my face daily, the trust that I have in His mercy and the peace that exists because of that trust, sustains me. There is nothing else that is worth so much in this world.
We are made right in God’s sight when we trust in Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, no matter who we are or what we have done. For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:22-23 NLT
