For us to live in obedience to God we need a proper understanding of this grace that he so generously pours out for us. As Matthew Henry says - Grace in the soul is new life. As death locks up the senses and seals up all the powers, the faculties, and anything that is good. Grace unlocks, opens all and enlarges the soul!

We all have relationships, whether it's with a spouse, friend, or family and those relationships can be difficult. We have 3 primary relationships: God, Self & Others - if one of these relationships is damaged it affects all the others but in Jesus there's hope and a new way in which we can develop successful relationships!
