5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
I think it is very important to understand grace and to understand that even with grace we still suffer the consequences to our sin. The grace of God is the most beautiful thing in the world, to the person who encounters it. The bible says he who has been forgiven much loves much.

Out Of A Pure Heart Ministries is a Ministry under Refuge of GOD Ministries (Bishop Gerald W. Scott). Out of A Pure Heart Ministries was birthed during a very difficult time in our lives. My husband and I were living in motels because we had been evicted out of our home due to my husband falling down the steps and breaking his hip. While in the motel, one day we went to the Library and the Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit and said "Out Of A Pure Heart". Out of A Pure Heart Ministries also has a ministry within it called Women Broken/Women Whole. Out Of A Pure Heart Ministries ministers to people who are homeless by providing seasonal clothing and shoes; food, and money. Women Broken/Women Whole's focus is on women who have been physically and or/ emotionally abused. As a woman who has dealt with emotional and physical abuse as a result of being in foster care and unhealthy, unholy relationships, I know all too well about the pain these women suffer. We minister love, forgiveness and the Word of GOD to these women who also, in many cases, are substance abusers and suffer from fear, anxiety and low self-esteem.
