  1. Deborah Johnston says:

    After reading this chapter, Hymn 365 in the Methodist Hymnal, “Grace Greater than our Sin” ran through my mind for about a week.
    “Grace, grace, God’s grace, grace that will pardon and cleanse within; Grace, grace, God’s grace, grace that is greater than all within.”
    I think it sums up this chapter.

  2. George Newton says:

    Discussion Questions:
    1. God’s grace is open to all mankind. It is the compass that provides direction to our lives pointing us to the gift of salvation.
    2. “If prevenient grace is the porch of the house of grace and justifying grace is the doorway,sanctifying grace represents the rooms in the infinite dwelling of God’s presence.” It is to see the world through God’s eyes leading us to the divine image He wills for us.
