We are brought into God’s kingdom by grace;
we are sanctified by grace;
we receive both temporal and spiritual blessings by grace;
we are motivated to obedience by grace;
we are called to serve and enabled to serve by grace;
we receive strength to endure trials by grace;
and finally, we are glorified by grace.
The entire Christian life is lived
under the reign of God’s grace.
– Jerry Bridges in Transforming Grace
