‘…the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner!” ’
Luke 18:13 (NRSV)
… some of the great changes God brings about in the characters of scripture. What could the lives of your five friends be like, transformed by the power of God’s love?
… for your five friends to be led by the Holy Spirit to understand the cost of God’s love for them in Christ; that this great sacrifice would lead them to repentance.
‘God creates out of nothing. Wonderful you say. Yes, to be sure, but He does what is still more wonderful: He makes saints out of sinners.’
