Not only are we saved by grace, we are also sanctified by grace, not by sweat. I have seen too many Christians who believe that they are justified by grace, but they are to be sanctified by observing a set of rules, and they are to depend on their own strength in order to be acceptable to God. Their joy in the liberty of Christ is lost in legalism. We are saved by the grace of God, and we continue in this grace, having gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. (Romans 5:2)
The failure to appreciate and appropriate the grace of God is dishonoring to God. It would be an affront to Him if we presumed that the grace of God is insufficient for our salvation and sanctification.
I hope that as you read this book, you will experience His grace-toration — the preciousness and the greatest of His grace toward you, and that the Holy Spirit will evoke in you a sense of heartfelt gratitude, and will lead you to love Him, and worship Him forever.
