Can you believe that it is 2006?
What will this year hold for us?
To start out this year with good news I dug up a quote that I found a while back that really shows what God's grace is:
God does not accept me just as I am; He loves me despite how I am. He loves me just as Jesus is; He loves me enough to devote my life to renewing me in the image of Jesus. This love is much, much better than unconditional! Perhaps we could call it ‘contraconditional’ love. God has blessed me because His Son fulfilled the conditions I could never achieve. Contrary to what I deserve, He loves me. And now I can begin to change, not to earn love, but because I’ve already received it. - David Powlison, Seeing with New Eyes
We hope that this year you will be able to find that amazing love of God.
