Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

August 10, 2011 (shines more brilliantly)

shines more brilliantly

“Before we can learn the sufficiency of God’s grace,
we must learn the insufficiency of ourselves.
The more we see our sinfulness,
the more we appreciate grace
in its basic meaning of God’s undeserved favor.
In a similar manner, the more we see our frailty,
weakness, and dependence,
the more we appreciate God’s grace
in its dimension of His divine assistance.
Just as grace shines more brilliantly
against the dark background of our sin,
so it also shines more brilliantly
against the background of our human weakness.”
- Jerry Bridges
