Following Jesus isn’t always easy, practical, fun, or popular because temptation hounds us every step of the way, every day of our lives. Through it all, God’s grace and forgiveness are powerfully available and instantly accessible to everyone, everywhere, all the time. We live in the middle of a deep and rich paradox. Grace and truth, pain and healing woven through our world, through time itself.
