Acts 10:27-28 — 27 While talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. 28 He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.
Where sin runs deep,
Your grace is more
Where grace is found
Is where You are
And where You are,
Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
