  1. Awesome!! Love it. Really great run-down of differences. I pray all will receive fully the gift of grace offered through our Lord Jesus Christ and live in Him the life He made them to live. Thank you for sharing your “processing” on this. God bless you today as you walk humbly with Him.

    • And if one drop of Christ’s blood is sufficient to save the world because of who He is, why do we minimize it? Why do our lives and experiences fall far short of the sacrifice that redeemed us? Why don’t we expect that the word is true when the sacrifice is referred to as once and for all? Why don’t we agree that with his stripes we are healed, the chastisement of our peace was upon him, if for nothing but for Who He is?

      BTW, I sense that your inward man is renewed day by day.

      Thank you for your rich comments sir.
