Andy Stanley — Sea of Glass
When sin stranded mankind in a sea of broken glass, God had a choice: hang an Out Of Order sign on our mess and move on or get involved. Because he cared, he chose to get involved. That meant he had to start somewhere.
He reached out to one man—Abraham—and asked for his trust. In return for Abraham’s faith, God credited him with righteousness and cleared a path for personal relationship. He makes the same offer to each of us.
Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit. (Psalm 32:1–2)
