Christ alone and the undeserved, totally consuming grace He pours out freely on me. How, then, could I not be so very passionate about trying to give just a fraction of that grace out. I struggle with it and work it out, but so desire to be a person of grace for my family and friends and strangers. The only way is to immerse myself in Him.
My life verses:
1 Timothy 4:12-16
"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers."
