Sermon: Rev. Sean Pease – Ezra: The Grace of God

True spiritual leaders stand between heaven and earth.  They represent God’s authority only in as much as they also represent His love.  They must identify with the needs and even the failures of the people.  Ezra fulfilled this roll well, and because of that – God’s grace was bestowed upon a disobedient generation.
