His Grace

P.D Tripp outlines the 2nd Reason why God responds to me in prayer...

Reason 2... His Grace!

Grace is foundational.  Without it our entire relationship with God crumbles out of existence.
Grace is what allows us to come to our Perfect God as Imperfect people.  Grace is what allows us to feel His presence and to have his spirit living inside of us.  Grace is what allows me to get up in the morning and start each day with a clean slate, sometimes, each hour.  Grace is how God can interact and relate with us while He continues to transform us into what we were meant to be.  Grace is how we can live expectantly knowing that when our time on earth is complete, we have a new home in heaven.  Without grace, our prayers would fall short. Our ability to come to our Father and present ourselves would be limited.  Grace didn't come for free however, it came at a very high price.
God's Grace was provided through Jesus so that the doors would be swung open and Jesus himself would present us to His Holy Father.

Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T'was blind but now I see

  1. How sweet the sound. The best day of my life as a Christ-follower was the day I learned about grace and began to pursue it.
