To know ourselves in Jesus is to know that we are already not guilty, we are justified. In understanding God, everything first goes through the Jesus filter, because we cannot separate the Son from the Father. So, grace does not occur as a reaction to the fall but precedes it.
We have been exploring the country of Grace this summer. And our purpose is to really meet God afresh. Usually we approach God from a self centered perspective, meaning that we are defining God as creator through the perspective of His creations.

Because of the Covid vaccines, it’s amazing how much sweeter this Mother’s Day was than one year ago.

On this National Day of Prayer
