The bare necessities.
Eyes to see.
Ears to hear.
And a heart soft enough to see its sin, humble itself, repent and believe that nothing it could do, nothing it could say, nothing it could have could save it save the shedding of blood.
This is the grace. You can't give yourself these things. They must be given to you.
Then when you see and hear and believe that Christ our God has shed his own blood in your place, then you will have peace. Peace with a righteous God who no longer needs to demand your death for your sin and the peace of mind that comes with that knowledge. Amen. May He grant you these things today.
