My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Because of grace unmeasured, boundless, free, now our once dead hearts beat and our once lifeless lungs breathe. Only through grace do we believe (Acts 18:27) and only in grace do we receive “repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth (2 Tim. 2:25).

Developing habits of grace come by hearing His voice thru His word and having His ear through prayer. These disciplines though we may know them as head knowledge become difficult to live out because of distractions and life. Our hearts are prone to wonder. David Mathis has a way of communicating these truths that I found myself seeing them as a way to draw myself closer to the heart of God. That is not a duty of a Christian but a joy because of grace. It is only by hearing his voice thru his word and by prayer that the Holy Spirit can work in our hearts.

He clearly teaches that grace sanctifies, justifies and glorifies. How do we practice grace? How do we discover the power of grace? It starts with the desires of the heart. Desiring more of God that leads us to have a contagious grace. I have found when we do have a good understanding and practice of grace, we have humility.

I don’t think we will ever have a thorough understanding of grace however, it is too important not to pursue grace. In the disciplines of reading and praying, the study will strengthen your faith as you value the doctrine of grace.

A Special Thank You to Crossway and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
