The one unfallen one of us offers us the grace we have no right to offer ourselves.

Human nature being what it is—unkind, ungenerous, and unmerciful—it’s nothing short of amazing that the one who loved to call Himself the Son of Man could have lived with such consistent tenderness and grace.
Jesus is that great exception to our otherwise unbroken rule of brokenness and sin. The one unfallen one of us—whom heaven also affirmed as Son of God—offers us the grace we have no right to offer ourselves and rarely offer to each other.
We follow Him in hope, believing that His saving act is the sole lifeline of humanity. He ever lives to intercede for us so that we, too, may yet lead lives that bless the world with unfeigned generosity.
