“‘Help us to live together as people who have been forgiven a great debt’—Peter Marshall.
A Christian who cannot pray this prayer has yet to become a disciple of Jesus. The fact of sins forgiven is the news that makes the church of Jesus first possible, then likely, and finally inevitable. When we lose sight of grace, we always do the devil’s business, amplifying accusations, weakening what Christ is building. When we talk of grace, and sing of it, and highlight grace within His Word, we join the swelling anthem of the redeemed that will one day—soon—overwhelm all bitterness, divisiveness, and tears. So stay in grace.”
