Dwight's comment on 2014-10-12 04:29:43:
our value is only found through grace. the value of the debt is removed by grace. this allowed the man to be free indeed. but without a thankful heart he receives no knowledge to live his freedom. he lives by law, not grace. he 's judged himself. God expects a softening of our hearts after receiving grace. otherwise we lose joy.
