True faith has to start with repentance. Perseverance is grounded in the understanding that we need to be shown grace. Jesus did not come to make this life better. He did not give us a parachute to make our flight through life more comfortable. He gave us a parachute because this life is going to crash and burn and we need to be saved.
This was the part that told me “I should re-post this.” This post made me think… How often do I stop to recognize God’s Sweet Amazing Grace in my life? Do you?
