Today's Lesson :
Mark: The Good News (12:13-17)
Can you believe that January of 2017 is nearly over? Why do I feel like all the Christmas decorations that just got put away will be coming right back out next week—or so? We are already on the third week of our thirteen week study of Worthless VIP/Grace classes. I have been hearing wonderful comments from many folks about how much they are enjoying the discussions, and I’ve been hearing folks just doing a lot more talking about grace in general. I love to hear people excited about grace. As I have said many times, grace isn’t about license—it’s about motivation. God’s wondrous grace not only defines who I am but what I do—and why I do it! Please keep on participating, praying, and promoting this wonderful church-wide study. Remember, it’s not only the theme of our class, but it is the theme for 2017, so we will be talking about it and referring to it for—well, even after we bring the Christmas decorations back out!
