The storyline is sadly clear: our foolish, broken choices lost for us what heaven gladly gifted us.
But there is more to write: grace takes the pen, and writes—in red—“FORGIVEN” over all our sins.
And then, like learning how to write again, we trace new characters that spell out “kindness,” “service,” “loyalty” and “love.”
The story is not finished until He Who calls Himself the Word actually writes the last word. The Author of our faith will yet be the Finisher of it. And grace will lead us home.
So stay in grace.
