One of the greatest transformations I see in the Bible is seen in Acts 20:26 when Paul says “Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men”.
Hold on, isn’t this the same man that murdered men and women of the Christian faith a couple of years ago?
The audacity to say that he is ‘innocent of the blood of ALL men’ can be seen as arrogant and insulting but looking deeper it shows how thoroughly he understood grace.
On that road to Damascus when he was changed, from Saul to Paul, that was it. All his sins, no matter how grievous they were, were abandoned, he became Brand New. Like creating a new username after deleting your Internet history.
Now if Paul can forgive himself in such a way, why can’t we?
I came under a deep conviction today as I stepped into Church.
As we step into church, the moment we cross the door is when we abandon ourselves, drop our guilt, shame and sin. Stepping into church is like diplomatic immunity. We come to worship and that is so profound. Despite those things we drop at the door, we are allowed to worship. And we should do so wholeheartedly no matter what happened Monday to Saturday. We come to magnify God and that should make us smile. It makes me smile. Thank You Lord for your Grace.

UK Office or USA Office? //not that I’ve ever watched either.
The US! You have to watch it. OH MY DAYS. There hasn’t been a funnier show since Friends.
I just watched season 6 ep 2 of The Office. And I have not laughed that hard in such a long time.
