Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound.
But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.
Looking back to the cross and all that Christ did for me. I am so thankful that God continues to pour out the grace that was so freely given to me on days when I feel I don’t deserve it. He loves well, even though I am still learning how to love. His grace is multiplied in my life when I mess up and this grace covers a multitude of sin. As God continues to impart grace to me, I continue to find areas in my life where grace abounds.
“Grace comes into the soul, as the morning sun into the world; first a dawning, then a light; and at last the sun in his full and excellent brightness.”
-Thomas Adams (1612-1653)
