That way the people around me might just get a glimpse of his glory also. The letter of the law always kills, bringing condemnation and guilt, but the life-giving Spirit always directs our attention to the perfection and fullness we possess in Christ. This is the ultimate spiritual attraction. That’s why Jesus offended the religious as he drew sinners around him.
Grace is not a doctrine or a theological statement – it’s a person, called Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Once you see him and taste his goodness and kindness, your heart is his forever. There is nothing too big or too small he could ever ask you to do that will meet with reluctance on your part. Your greatest joy and pleasure is in pleasing him. These are the amazing effects of grace and the cell vision is nothing without them. Once deeply experienced, grace produces willing and passionate people who love the cell vision because it gives them the opportunity to be effective workers for Christ.
