Grace Experienced - J. Douglas MacMillan


"Grace is God coming into human experience. You cannot separate grace from Christ and you cannot separate Christ from the Father. If you have grace you have it because God in the Trinity of his persons has come into your life. He has come in through the Son: 'Christ shall dwell in your hearts by faith' (Eph. 3:17). That is what makes a Christian. It is not merely what a person believes intellectually. Is is not what is done morally. What makes a Christian is Christ coming to dwell in his or her heart."

-J. Douglas MacMillan, God of All Grace, pg. 64
