No matter how disheartening the world is and whatever is happening in it, we have a Savior who gave us a great gift (John 3:16) and the hope of an eternal life we can't even imagine! Grace is unmerited favor - we don't deserve it. He has been merciful to all that receive His grace and His mercy is vast. Justification is part of the equation - our guilt and penalty of sin is removed through the sacrifice of His Son. What is the cost to us? Nothing but our faith!
