‘Grace is God’s refusal to allow us to define ourselves or to have the last word.’ – Michael Horton
Words have weight – carrying the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). Flowing from the heart, coming out of the mouth to bless or curse (Luke 6:45, James 3:10). Our Enemy – the father of lies – is constantly attempting to leverage the words we hear in culture, in passing, in relationship, and the words we speak to ourselves to convince us of his truth – which are in fact lies (John 8:44). But over the life of a Christ follower, there is a Better Word Spoken. The Word Christ, the Word of His blood, the Word of His sacrifice, the Word of Grace (Hebrews 12:24).
And as Paul shared with Cornerstone Liverpool on Sunday – this grace is a liberating truth!
