What’s So Great About Irresistible Grace?

22 05 2008

Sometime in the next few weeks I’ll hopefully be posting a review of Richard Phillips new book What’s So Great About the Doctrines of Grace?  However, this morning I just couldn’t help sharing this quote with you.  This is part of Phillips’ answer to “What’s so great about the doctrine of Irresistible Grace?”:

It reminds us that when we speak about God’s grace, we do not mean that God sits afar and cuts sinners a little slack by giving them a second chance.  Rather, God places His holy hands on our filthy hearts.  With more personal contact than any surgeon uses in operating on our bodies, God is intimately involved in saving our souls.  How sublime beyond words it is to realize that the transcendent, majestic God takes such a personal interest in every sinner who comes to faith in Christ.  Far from being a nameless number in a vast crowd, every believer has been personally ministered to by God’s overwhelming grace.  Truly, He is to us as a Father to His dear children and as a Shepherd to His beloved flock.  (pgs. 80-81)
