On Grace p1 of 2:
Clara: So he needs grace.
Liz: Grace? I don't know that he deserves grace.
Clara: Do you deserve grace?
Liz: Ms. Clara, you have a habit of backing me up in a corner and making me squirm.
Clara: I felt the same way. But the question still remains. Do you deserve grace? The Bible says that no one is righteous, not even one. For we have all sinned. So, really, none of us deserve grace. But we all still want God's forgiveness. Elizabeth, it comes down to this. Jesus shed his blood on the cross. He died for you. Even when you did not deserve it. And He rose from the grave and offers forgiveness and salvation for anyone who turns to Him. But the Bible also says that we can't ask Him to forgive us while refusing to forgive others.
