This blog is dedicated to Grace Community Church (1106 Mill St. Yorkville, IL. 60560) where my not-so-smooth sanctification has been put on display for over 17 yrs as their pastor (1 Tim. 4:15-16), but that’s the beauty of God’s grace: “But by the grace of God I am what I am” (1 Cor. 15:10). Like a wonderfully constructed sound board for an instrument, God is showing off how gracious he is to me in Christ and my response is to enjoy (that’s the absorption part of grace) and then reflect it in the way I love God and my neighbor (that’s the vibration part of grace). Everything is to the Praise of the Glory of His Grace!
