Today’s Reading – Romans 1-3
Romans 3:23-24 CEB
Paul frames the discussion of grace in the proper manner when he reminds us that we have all sinned and fallen short. Period end of sentence.
God is not tolerant of us. God didn’t suddenly become fed up with the totality of our sins. No, we ALL have sinned and failed.
In the name of tolerance, we need to be able to draw the line and create standards – isn’t that what the 10 commandments represents? God’s standards.
While you are claiming God’s grace, be mindful of why you need it and at what price this grace comes . . .
