God's Grace: The Story of Abraham

God's dealings with humanity have always been colored by grace. Way back in Old Testament times, Abraham was a selfish, manipulative coward who brought destruction to all kinds of people that he came into contact with.

When Jesus Became Sin (The Father of Mercies #5)

The great exchange is that Jesus became sin so that we might become God's righteousness. God has reconciled us to Himself, so that we're no longer alienated from Him and no longer at odds with Him.

Now that we've been reconciled to Him, our job is to be reconcilers on behalf of everyone around us.
