  • 00:19:35.936 --> 00:19:39.473
  • And that will get you throughthe darkest times
  • 00:19:39.506 --> 00:19:41.608
  • and the worst situations.
  • 00:19:41.642 --> 00:19:44.178

  • And I don't deserve God'slove, but you know what?
  • 00:20:20.214 --> 00:20:23.550
  • That's what grace is.
  • 00:20:23.584 --> 00:20:25.185
  • Grace is God saying, "Look,you don't deserve it,
  • 00:20:25.219 --> 00:20:27.454

  • It's not by our works, it'snot by our religion, it's by
  • 00:20:45.572 --> 00:20:48.108
  • trusting that Jesus, the Sonof God, died for our sins
