There is a problem that every human being faces called sin. It leads to consequences that are bigger than we realize. Try as we might, our attempts to solve this problem on our own amount to nothing more than hedonism, judgmentalism, or legalism. Thankfully, God has a solution called grace, and it is by grace that our sin can be dealt with, once and for all.
The God of heaven offers us the greatest gift imaginable: *himself.* God solved our sin problem by offering the gift of his own life. He sentenced himself for our sins and paid a price we never could. God’s holiness is honored. Our sin is punished. And we are offered redemption.
Children of God who cry out, “Abba, Daddy,” are still in a battle. Old patterns of life still entice us, and the enemy of our soul still lies, steals, and seeks to destroy us. Yet in all of this, we can know that God has won the war, we are loved by him, and we are more than conquerors!
The sixty-six books of our Bible tell a powerful, honest, and shocking story of God’s work through ordinary and broken people. God is still writing this story, and every person who comes to the Father through faith in Jesus is part of this great drama that is unfolding.
