Read Chapter 13 (download below) and consider your responses to the following:
- J.I. Packer refers to Grace as a “doctrine”. For some reason, this word “doctrine” leads us to think of objective science and abstract dogma. And yet the subject stirs to our souls and quickens our hearts (hence, J.I. Packer’s many references to joyful hymns in this chapter!). What use might “doctrine” be to our spiritual growth?
- How does this doctrine of Grace stir your soul? What is at stake? Why does it matter?
Now address your response(s) to God in prayer
