Elizabeth: If there’s one thing we do well, it’s fight.
Miss Clara: No, I don’t think you do. Just because you argue a lot doesn’t mean you fight well. I bet you never feel like you’ve won.
A marriage on the brink:
Mike: Dude, what's up with you and Liz?
Mike: Nothing? Look at you getting all uptight. You got extra veins popping out that wasn't even there before.
Tony: Mike, I'm just tired of her. Okay? All right? I said it. I'm just tired of her junk.
Mike: Her junk? Dude, you married her, junk and all. It's not some sort of buffet where you
get to pick and choose what you want. You get all of her, bro. And you better not have somebody on the side.
Tony: So, you're trying to do CPR on my personal life now?
Mike: Okay. Yeah, I'm a paramedic. But I'm also a Christian, which means I help people while I'm helping people.
Tony: Mike, look, we've been friends for a long time, but some things are just none of your business.
Mike: True, and since we've been friends a long time, I'm not just gonna watch your marriage die. So if it's bleeding, I'm not gonna keep eating my salad.
Liz: So, you know, I'm praying for God to fight for me 'cause I am just sick of losing. But not against God. I need to lose against God. I'm sick of losing in other areas where I'm just fighting but I just keep losing all the time. It's exhausting. So I'm learning how not to fight God and how to let Him fight for me so that we can all win. Does that make any sense?
On Grace p1 of 2:
Clara: So he needs grace.
Liz: Grace? I don't know that he deserves grace.
Clara: Do you deserve grace?
Liz: Ms. Clara, you have a habit of backing me up in a corner and making me squirm.
Clara: I felt the same way. But the question still remains. Do you deserve grace? The Bible says that no one is righteous, not even one. For we have all sinned. So, really, none of us deserve grace. But we all still want God's forgiveness. Elizabeth, it comes down to this. Jesus shed his blood on the cross. He died for you. Even when you did not deserve it. And He rose from the grave and offers forgiveness and salvation for anyone who turns to Him. But the Bible also says that we can't ask Him to forgive us while refusing to forgive others.
On Grace p2 of 2:
Liz: I know, Ms. Clara. But that's just so hard to do.
Clara: Yes, it is. Yes, it is. But that's where grace comes in! He gives us grace! And He helps us to give it to others, even when they don't deserve it. We all deserve judgment.
And that is what a holy God gives us when we don't repent and believe in His Son. ... Elizabeth, there's not room for you and God on the throne of your heart. It's either Him or it's you. You need to step down. Now, if you want victory, you're gonna have to first surrender. ... God is a good defense attorney. Trust it to Him.
Clara: War. It's been a part of humanity in every age. We fight for power, for riches, for rights or for freedom. There always seems to be something to fight for. But one thing has remained true of every war. Behind the field of battle, someone has developed a strategy. ... I find myself amazed that of the many battles we engage in today, be it money, control or matters of the heart, very few of us know how to fight the right way, or understand who we're really fighting against. To win any battle, you've got to have the right strategy and resources, because victories don't come by accident.
