Grace is a But, Not a Therefore

"God’s grace always, always, always comes as a contradiction to what makes natural sense to us–it always comes as a but, not a therefore.....

....Not long ago a gentleman approached me after a talk I had delivered and said, “I’m 60 years-old and have had great success as a businessman and I’m here to tell you from experience that grace doesn’t work in this world.” My immediate response was, “Well maybe it appears that way only because grace isn’t from this world.”"
