Costly ,,, and Transformative!

“What looks more glorious? A God who loves us by ignoring our sin? Or a God who pays the enormous debt for our sin by taking it upon Himself? When sin is seen as the rebellion it is, grace is costly — and tranformative! When sin is shrunken to the point that our accountability to God is removed, then grace is cheap, and it leaves us unchanged.”

— Trevin Wax, Counterfeit Gospels (Chicago, Ill.: Moody Publishers, 2011), 55
