I asked a group of friends to address this very thing in a five part July sermon series at Coral Ridge while I'm away. The series is entitled Grace on the Ground and it is intended to help sinners think about how grace works in and through the challenges we face on a daily basis.
Two weeks ago my friend Jono Linebaugh's (Professor of NT at Knox Theological Seminary and Content Manager of LIBERATE) preached a sermon in this summer series called "Known and Loved." I've listened to it twice--and I rarely listen to any sermon twice. It's that good. I strongly encourage you to take 35 minutes and listen. Enjoy!
