On this third Sunday of Lent, Melissa spoke from Romans 5:1-11.
Most of our sins aren’t interesting or dangerous. They’re mostly petty and boring and cruel. We short change both the chasm of our failings and the grace of God when we limit the scope of our sins to doing bad things.
Our sins are rooted in distortion about one central truth, the truth that we are loved. Loved not because of what we have done or accomplished, but because there is an inexhaustible flame that burns forever for all of us. God continues to love us.
