The "Nowism" of the Gospel

This post was a bulls eye for me today. Paul Tripp uses a "case study" to unpack how grace is absolutely necessary to be healthy: to be humble and heartened. Without the Gospel "now", we are lost every day.

His main points:
  1. Grace will decimate what you think of you, while it gives you a security of identity you've never had.

  2. Grace will expose your deepest sins of heart, while it covers every failure with the blood of Jesus.

  3. Grace will make you face how weak you are, while it blesses you with power beyond your ability to calculate.

  4. Grace will take control out of your hands, while it blesses you with the care of One who plan is unshakable and perfect in every way.
Read the whole thing here. I recommend it for any weary soul.
