When we mess up, often others cast us off. But not Jesus. He opened wide His arms and died in order to draw us close.

2. Why does God’s grace annihilate both guilt and self-condemnation?
3. What’s the difference between striving and yielding?
4. Think of some way you tend to sin. (Example, acting prideful, lying, etc.) When attempting to move past that sin, what might striving look like?
