Grace Restfulness

17 Oct

I read this last week and can’t stop thinking about it:

  • To believe and consent to be loved while unworthy, is the great secret.
  • To refuse to make resolutions and vows; for that is to trust in the flesh.
  • To expect to be blessed, though realizing more and more lack of worth.
  • To rely on God’s chastening (child training) had as a mark of his kindness.
  • To hope to be better (hence acceptable) is to fail to see yourself in Christ only.
  • To be disappointed with yourself is to have believed in yourself.
  • To be discouraged is unbelief–as to God’s purpose and plan of blessing for you.
  • To be proud is to be blind! For we have no standing before God, in ourselves. – Miles J. Standford

This is the grace life.

(I don’t normally recommend a book after 30 pages, but The Complete Green Letters by Miles J. Stanford is [Disclaimer: so far] totally amazing!)
