Growing in Grace

It has been awhile since I've reminded y'all why this website exists, what my sporadic bursts of posting are all about.

John Newton talks about Growing in Grace this way:

"Every step along the path is a battle for the Christian to keep two eyes on Christ...If I may speak of my own experience, I find that to keep my eye simply on Christ, as my peace, as my life, is by far the hardest part of my calling....I approach the throne of grace encumbered with a thousand distractions of thought, each which seems to engage more of my attention than the business I have in hand."
The essence of Christian living is "To know him is the shortest description of true grace; to know him better is the surest mark of growth in grace; to know him perfectly, is eternal life."
Then let me boast with holy Paul, that I am nothing, Christ is all.  
(from the excellent book, Newton on the Christian Life: Christ is All, by Tony Reinke)

Grace and Peace to you,
