15  We are dependant on the compassion and grace of God  We are no more worthy of that grace than anyone else  We are in no less need of that grace than anyone else  We must walk with God in humility  We must allow Him to challenge our understanding of Himself and His gospel  We should expect to be part of Christ’s commission to tell others of His Gospel
