Thoughts from "In My Father's House" by John Dink

A blog for: the broken, the wounded, the mourning, the weak, the desperate, the humiliated.

"Law to the proud.  Grace to the humble." ~ Hell's Best Kept Secret by Ray Comfort

Reading one of John Dink's older posts (as I have only recently become aware of his writings and wanted to hear more while I waited for the next new post) I found this reminder that grace is for the humbled.

Check out the full blog HERE.

If you despair in your heart from all your misdeeds or the incompleteness of your good deeds, thank Jesus for this brokeness.  A contrite spirit and a broken will before God are His blessings to you. 

May the Gospel be preached as the Best News to those for whom doom is forecast in their hearts by the grace of the Holy Spirit. 

Preacher, please remember to preach the devastating nature of the Law in humility and petition that the Spirit may produce in the souls of its hearers a total undoing.  Preach the terrifying nature of the Gospel in proclaiming that this new found dilemma has in its wake the reconciliatory solution of Christ on a cross, complete, and accomplished.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fear relieved.
~ "Amazing Grace"
