Reigning Grace

Jan 2016 - April 2016

Scripture tells us of God, creation, rejection, redemption, re-creation, and worship. Furthermore it tells us of one who is beyond us, from whom, through whom, and for whom are all things. It continues to tell us how we got to be where we are and how we can become more than we were. Scripture speaks of our rescue from this fallen world and the restoration of all things. All of this will end in the same place it began. God did for us what we could never do for ourselves. He stooped in order to save His people from sin's debt and adopt them into His family. This is the Story. It is the chronicling of His triumph through grace over the rebellion of His people.
