I'm reading "In the Grip of Grace" by Max Lucado. Sofar, I'm really enjoying it and I thought I'd share just an insert from one of the pages.
What a God!
Ponder the achievement of God. He doesn't condone our sin, nor does he compromise his standard. He doesn't ignore our rebellion, nor does he relax his demands. Rather than dismiss our sin, he assumes our sin and incredibly, sentences himself. God's holiness is honored. Our sin is punished... and we are redeemed. God does what we cannot do so we can be what we dare not dream: perfect before God.
