One of the great moments of my life was when I first understood the meaning of the first two verses of Isaiah 40.

Comfort, yes Comfort my people, says the Lord. Speak peaceably to Jerusalem, Tell her(tell yourself) that her struggling is done. For the Grace given to her is Double all of her sins.(paraphrased)

Double. Double. Or as Paul would have it, 'Where I had lots of sin, God had WAY more Grace'

This is the message that gets us out of bed in the morning. It is the reason life is worth living.

Excellent!! There are sins that weigh heavier on me...I mean, how could God forgive me for that. But, I remember a certain tax collector crying out for mercy and I want that to always be me.

Our sins they are many, His mercy is more.

This is religion.

My Sins They are Many, Your Mercy is More

This is relationship.
