“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” (John 15:13). Yet I was not even your friend… While I was still your enemy, you died for me (Romans 5:10)! Surely, this is how we know what love is!
“My guilt appeared so small before, till terribly I saw
How perfect, holy, just and pure was Your eternal Law
Let Your blood plead for me, let Your blood wash me clean
I believe, Lord I believe, Your blood has covered me!”
Best commentary on Linsanity I have read so far.
The sermon I preached at King of Grace Church on January 8th, 2012.
1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” 3 So he told them this parable: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
