Transforming grace

Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? Rom. 2:4

The opposite of cheap grace is not harsh grace. God’s transforming grace reconciles us to Him. Our temptations and failures and even our resistance to His work of reconciliation does not occur outside His transforming grace. God does not force transformation upon us, but He does not abandon us to our sin either.

Lord, keep speaking to me through Your Holy Spirit, even when I don’t want to hear it.
