Grace (4) – Things Which Gracious Souls Discover

  1. To “hope to be better” is to fail to see yourself in Christ only.
  2. To be disappointed with yourself is to have believed in yourself.
  3. To be discouraged is unbelief — as to the Father’s purpose and plan of blessing for you.
  4. To be proud is to be blind! For we have no standing before God, in ourselves.
  5. The lack of Divine blessing, therefore, comes from unbelief, and not from failure of devotion.
  6. Real devotion to the Father arises, not from man’s will to show it; but from the discovery that blessing has been received from Him while we were yet unworthy and undevoted.
  7. To preach devotion first, and blessing second, is to reverse God’s order and preach Law, not Grace. The Law made man’s blessing depend on devotion; Grace confers undeserved, unconditional blessing: our devotion may follow, but does not always do so — in proper measure.
