How do you understand grace? In what ways have you been transformed by grace? Witnessed transformation by grace? How are you challenged by grace?

Great Question Mr. R.
 "I declare that I endeavored to teach His Word undefiled and to expound Holy Scripture faithfully, according to the measure of grace which He has given me.” (excerpt from John Calvin’s last will and testament.

Calvins words brought comfort and solace, knowing that I can only dispense the measure of Grace given to me. I.e., what ever season I was in.. thats where I needed to be.

How do you understand grace?

Grace is God treating me like the Lord Jesus deserved, because he has treated the Lord Jesus Christ as I deserve to be treated! 

In what ways have you been transformed by grace? 

I see my sin more and more! 

How are you challenged by grace?

To repent, to trust and to worship tomorrow more then I do today! 
"George Whitefield said, "We are all born Arminians." It is grace that turns us into Calvinists." Spurgeon
