Amazing Grace

I do not at all understand the mystery of grace ~
only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.

~Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies

Romans 5:20 (The Message)

All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers.
But sin didn't, and doesn't, have a chance in competition
with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace.
When it's sin versus grace, grace wins hands down. All sin can do is threaten us with death,
and that's the end of it. Grace, because God is putting everything together
again through the Messiah, invites us into life—
a life that goes on and on and on, world without end.
