“the Gospel reminds us that nothing done to us, no matter how wicked, will ever surpass the wickedness done by us, to the holy Son of God.”

Humbling eh? I’ve just read that in ‘love that lasts: when marriage meets grace’, which I should add, is an excellent book.

It’s such a true and humbling statement, and yet we so often excuse sinful reaction (anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, withdrawal, indulgence) because of what people do to us.

But how does God respond when we have been far more wicked to him? ‘while we were still sinners Christ died for us.’

His grace is sufficient.
