Miniblog #180: Finally Coming to Appreciate “Means of Grace”
*Adapted from a Facebook status update on 4-5-2013
As my former professor of systematic theology would attest, I used to vocally resist the term “means of grace”… OK, OK. Yes, I despised… It always seemed like pious theological nonsense. Yet in the past couple months I’ve come to see InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Brendan Payne, and Winston Ewert as, well, God’s means of grace in my life. There’s just no other way to put it. Life lesson: Sometimes it takes hardship to give theological concepts cognitive traction in one’s life.
