‘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!

Believe the Better Word this week.

Be liberated by the Better Word this week.

Serve in and by and through the power of the Better Word this week.

Believing,
