The last post came as a result of several things.
Number one, I've been thinking and learning and studying about sin lately. By this I mean, my sin, my sin in relation to God, and the way not being right with God affects my relationships with other people. At the end of all this comes the glorious reality that yes I am a sinner. But, I am a sinner saved by grace, through faith, unto good works which have already been prepared for me to do!
Number three, I watched John Piper's sermon on Broken Hearted Boldness the other night.
