Two episodes in and I can’t say how much I’ve been looking forward to this one. After laying the groundwork last week, when I read this I knew it would be a great follow-up, and a crucial message for anyone listening. Our justification is based, for one thing, in our need for it! We have nothing to offer God, no work to please Him, but He has called His children to come as they are into their inheritance with Christ.
For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.–Psalm 51:15-16
