Dave's stock answer to every caller's question, "How are you?" is "BETTER THAN I DESERVE!"
How great is that?! How TRUE is that?!
Lately, I've been challenged (and frankly, OVERWHELMED in a positive way) by insights of Paul David Tripp on the subject of grace. This, for example: "Never forget that what God required you couldn't do...Christ did it for you...his grace is your hope."
Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus, Deeper than the mighty rolling sea; Higher than the mountain, sparkling like a fountain, All sufficient grace for even me; Broader than the scope of my transgressions, Greater far than all my sin and shame; O magnify the precious Name of Jesus, Praise His Name!
Music & Lyrics: Haldor Lillenas
"How am I doing?" you ask. "Better than I deserve!" His grace IS my hope.
