“We all need big grace” by Paul David Tripp

“If the Bible’s description is accurate, then God’s grace is our only hope. Thank God that He has given us big grace! Each one of us needs grace that’s not only big enough to forgive our sin, but also powerful enough to free us from the self-atoning prison of our own righteousness.

We’re not only held captive by our sin, but also by the delusion of our righteousness. Resting in God’s grace isn’t just about confessing your sin; it’s about forsaking your righteousness as well. So we all need the big grace that’s found only in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

–Paul David Tripp, Whiter Than Snow: Meditations on Sin and Mercy (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2008), 29.
