“One of the biggest things God has been showing us as a band over the years is that the gospel is about the unearned goodness and love of God in the face of all of our sin. That God so loved us He gave His Son. His redemption is a gift. You cannot buy it and you cannot earn it. Jesus bore my sin and said “Father forgive him, he knows not what he does.” When I see Jesus on the cross, I am overwhelmed by His goodness, and His goodness is what leads me into change.
You don’t spend money on something you think is cheap. If God thought we were cheap, He would’ve bought us back with something worthless. But we were redeemed not by perishable things, like silver or gold, but by the imperishable blood of Jesus like that of a lamb without spot or blemish.” The blood of Jesus is my value in God! When I understand that, I’m overwhelmed by His goodness towards me and His goodness leads me into change.” - Leeland Mooring
