A friend of mine posted a review of the book PROOF: Finding Freedom Through the Intoxicating Joy of Irresistible Grace.
While I sometimes struggle with this particular doctrine, I find it often very encouraging. I would like to share one of the quotations that he also shared. One of these days I might ask him to borrow this book.
[su_quote]Whenever we find ourselves face-to-face with a living example of one-way love with no strings attached, our tendency is to change the subject – or to switch the story so that God’s grace doesn’t land in the lap of an active slave trader or our delusional next-door neighbor or a dance in some sleazy downtown club. We live by law but call it grace. Such grace isn’t amazing because it isn’t grace at all; it’s law in a cheap mask. And whenever you show up at a party that’s hosted by the law, you’re the one who’s left with the bill.[/su_quote]
