Wise Words for Today

The disciplines of grace constitute a special arena of grace in which, through intensive personal encounter with the living God, in the presence of his Spirit and the power of His Word, our love for him is renewed and deepened, and we are further enlivened in Christ to love our neighbors as ourselves…..in the disciplines of grace, there is an intensification of God’s presence and power that comes from careful and deliberate attention to these disciplines, and that can effect dramatic and permanent change in our lives. This experience of the transforming grace of God cannnot be found anywhere else. Without it we can hardly expect to know the life-changing power of Christ in the normal course of our lives.
