Grace Makes It Possible to Hear the Hardest Things

conversation on phone

Jack Miller on how grace changes the heart:

I’m glad for what God enabled you to emphasize – that God has a gracious heart toward us in our sins and that sanctification as well as justification is of grace. You would think that would be self-evident, wouldn’t you?
…I do not think that an emphasis on grace leads to a soft ministry on sin and the severe demands of the law. Actually it seems to me that such grace teaching makes it possible for sinners like us to hear the hardest things said about our sin patterns, and that can lead to a healthy sorrow which then leads back to sanity, i.e. repentance.
