When you do something wrong, do you beat yourself up or do you go easy on yourself? Which way do you lean when someone else does something wrong - punishment or be nice to them?
Most of us tend to lean one way or the other. If you grew up with two parents, one was probably the tough parent and one was the nice parent.
Grace and Truth
This scripture uses different words but the same idea - grace and truth. Truth is holding people accountable for their actions. Making things right. Grace is mercy and is completely undeserved.
Jesus is full of grace and truth. When Jesus interacts with someone who has done wrong, He doesn’t forget what they did. He calls sin “sin.”
But He also leans into a relationship with sinners. Grace is an invitation that says, “I know all about you, the good and the bad, and I love you anyway. Follow me and I will lead you away from your life of sin.”
Steelbridge welcomes men and women off the streets regardless of their religion. They are welcome if they believe in God or not. We have structured academics and practical classes. But the difference at Steelbridge is: we introduce everyone to Jesus.
Jesus is the unsettling solution to every problem on the streets of Albuquerque. Join us.
