For every ‘again’ of sin, there is in Christ another ‘again’ of grace.

What happens when we sin again and wander from God again? What happens when we’ve received his grace afresh, and then turned away from it yet another time?  Maybe the same sin we thought we were done with.  Maybe the same sin we’ve repented of dozens of times. We can hardly believe that we’ve done it again.

What does God’s word say to us?

“For every again of sin, there is, in Christ, another again of grace.”

Ray Ortlund, Jr. God Gives New Beginnings (sermon available here).
