The grace of Jesus doesn’t give us license to go on sinning and being stubborn, but it does mean that when we cry out to God for forgiveness, we can be made right before God through the sacrifice of Jesus; in this righteousness, we are made more holy through the power of the Spirit.
God is paying attention. God comes close to us, wants to be present with us, attends with us.
What if our worshipping communities made Psalm 119 their anthem? What if talking about the gift of God’s Law made our hearts leap in a good way?
