What Will You Leave at the Cross



Narrator: Holiness demands that sin be punished. Mercy compels that the sinner be loved. How can God do both?

Principal: This is the 10th time before me this week. What do you have to say for yourself?

Student: Uhhhhhh!!??

Principal:  Speak up child!

Student: Well sir, Principal Grier sir,  I really try to be good, but the good in me just can’t seem to stay, when I want to do good the bad just keeps overriding me. I’m doing the best but I guess it’s just not good enough.
