My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

Seems Like A Plan
If, according to the apostle Paul, a routine of rule keeping familiarizes us with sin and all of its misery (Romans 7:7-13), then it is no wonder that people are running to grace and to grace teachers, grace books and grace movies. Shouldn’t they? A life by grace in Christ is the only way to know that we are, indeed, dead to sin and alive to God, now in us (Romans 6:13-14). What’s not to like about that? And the point of it all? We get to know the mystery—Christ in us—and He gets to impress us and those around us with how good He actually is. Seems like a plan to me.
