If we truly take the time to process our own sinful nature and then pair that with a time of meditation on all that Christ is and has done for us, we too will proclaim, “How Can It Be?” like Lauren Daigle in this week’s song.
However, the conviction of our guilt should not lead us to a place of shame, but to repentance.
On this episode I discuss:
- The story behind the song from New Release Tuesday
- The story of the adulterous woman found in John 8:1-11
- Where my unfiltered writing took me this week
- God’s answer to the prayer found at the end of Psalm 139
- Conviction leading us to repentance not shame
- How we “hide” from God
- 1 John 2:1-2 teaching us not to sin, but reminding us that if we do, we have an Advocate
- My experience as a Court Appointed Special Advocate
- The awe-filled conclusion when considering God’s grace…how…can…it…be?
- 2 Corinthians 5:14-21
