Because He First Loved Us | Sarah Biggs

Jesus freely gave. He never gave out of the question or response, “What do they deserve", or “Hmm, whoever works for me will receive this and that." I think if we tried to get all of our good deeds on a list and showed it to Jesus, it would look like a horrible mess. We are, in our own nature, broken sinners who need someone to shower us with grace, freedom, and love.

In a little over a month, Link Year will be over, and I’ll be back home getting ready to work at Kanakuk Kamps for the month of June, and then I’ll head off to Central Arkansas for summer school a week after I finish working. It truly is amazing to think that I will only be writing a few more end of the week reviews.
