The Glory of Grace: Delivered
My Granny’s chocolate chip cookies – a passion I carry till this very day! If we didn’t walk in the door to the smell of freshly-baked cookies, no doubt there was a big glass mason jar full of them waiting for us. But later in life, I discovered a “law” about Granny’s cookies – never eat the last one. The worst temptation ever! I knew I should share them with others, but honestly, I wanted those cookies more than I wanted to see anyone else enjoy them.
God’s law gives us life, yet also brings temptation into it. We all have our version of the “cookie jar”. But Paul tells us that God’s law has a purpose, and despite the problems within ourselves, we have the power to overcome them.
