In the world, grace doesn’t reign, and we sometimes forget that even in ministry, and seek to prove ourselves by our goodness or our performance. But the truth is that we begin by grace, stay and serve by grace, and will remain by grace. And rejoicing in that truth will keep us safe till the end!
I’ve been a slow learner in the school of grace, but thankfully it’s been sinking in more over the recent years. Things that have helped are: praying that I’ll have the attitude of the tax collector, not Pharisee (Luke 18:9-14), interacting with people who really know & love grace, reading books like “Perfect Sinners” and “Ministry under the Microscope”.
