God does not leave us where he found us
We say around Garnett that you can come as you are, but God loves you too much to keep you that way. Everything about who God is demands that our lives change. I love how Anne Lamott says it,
"I do not at all understand the mystery of grace--only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us."
Read 2 Corinthians 4:1-18
