We “feel” like we have to be perfect
As a father, mother, child, etc.
List do’s and don’ts
Isn’t that what we see?
Don’t mess up, you’ll get kicked out of the club
We’re saved, but not by works

He’s not waiting for you to fail
He’s not waiting to yank salvation away from you
We don’t jump in and out of salvation
So what is it that saves us? (Saved by Grace)

And you’re saved by it

How can I be sure?

When you are weakest, He is strongest
His grace is sufficient
