Restoring Grace (12 of 14)
Series: Amazing Grace
I want you to take God's Word today and turn to Mark 14:66. I want to continue on the series of messages on grace. I hope they have been a blessing to you. They have been a blessing to me as I have studied and prepared these messages on God's amazing grace. Today I want to talk about "Restoring Grace". Last time I spoke about liberating grace, about how God's grace liberates us and how we are free through the cross of Calvary, but today I want to talk about restoring grace, and the fact that we are not only saved by grace but we live by grace.

No matter how dark our sin is.
Mark 14:66-71 (KJV) "And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest: And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth. But he denied, saying, I know no ...
