Knowing God – Chapter 13

In this chapter, Packer dissects the doctrine of grace and the implications that it should have on a Christian’s life. What impacted me most in this chapter is Packer’s reminder that grace is something that never leaves the Christian’s walk with God. Not only do we experience grace that is freely dispensed by God who draws sinners to Himself through the sacrifice of His Son but we are also sustained by grace each and every day. We can’t do anything to change our position before God because He’s the one who initiates, sustains, and completes our salvation. If we understand that God is the author and perfecter of our faith, we have no choice but praise and respond to God in gratitude and thankfulness.
