The Destructive Power of Grace

Love this from "Grace Destroys" by Justin Buzzard:
We sing about “Amazing Grace,” but we could change the adjective and also sing about “Destructive Grace.”
Grace destroys.
Grace is the undeserved love of God. It’s the most powerful force in the universe. And when grace comes into your life it destroys things.
Grace destroys the old you.
Grace destroys the idols that enslave you, breaking the chains you didn’t even know you had.
Grace destroys old habits, old ways, that had been part of your life for so long and had been killing you for so long.
Grace destroys the old operating system.
It’s a good destruction. Grace destroys in order to birth and build something new and beautiful.
Destructive Grace, how sweet the sound.
