An inspiring truth
Grace. No matter what I write about, it always comes back to this single, central, splendid truth. Maybe because I digress too much, or maybe just because in the end everything is about grace. I think the latter, J.I. Packer says that:
“This one word ‘grace’ contains within itself the whole of New Testament theology.”
And if you disagree with J.I. Packer, then you’re probably a heretic…
But what does grace MEAN, it can’t be covered in a mere blog post, the subject is too vast and too glorious – a lifetime’s study would not exhaust the doctrine of grace. However, the impossibility of fully grasping something is a terrible excuse for not starting, so let us briefly scratch the surface of what grace is, and then in more depth consider what grace means for salvation.
