The Bible is clear about the depraved sinful nature that each of us inherited at the very moment of conception. Yet, God in His mercy and grace offers us a pivot point of change if by faith we receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. This miraculous contrast takes an individual from being an "object of wrath" to becoming not only a part of God's forever family, but also the opportunity to be considered His friend if we yield ourselves in submission to Him.
