Where Do You Learn Such Grace?

Where do you go to see good being returned for evil?  Where do you go to receive grace in order that you might be able to bless those who persecute you, to forgive those who sin against you, or to give your life away for those who despise you?  Who knowingly blessed those who would betray Him, knowing God would bless such sacrifice efficaciously?

Where do you go to see this work itself out – where God is truly glorified and where good comes out of and from such suffering?  Who was ever smitten and afflicted so much while loving the world around Him?  Who gladly turned the other cheek?  Who could ever change you from the inside out so that you lived in such a way?  Where could you go to become a man or a woman who did so and did so gladly, from the heart?

All who are baptized are welcome to come here – to listen – and to receive.
