My Journey into Grace
Have you noticed that amongst reformed books and articles, there is very little in the way of testimony? What I mean by that is that unlike other theological camps, stories of conversions are not normally emphasized. Rather, our passion is to simply point people to the word of God and through that means, let the Lord do His work in transforming the hearts and minds of people. We understand that the power is in the Word of God, not our testimony. That is so very true. Yet I think it is sometimes helpful for people to come to know something about how God transformed our understanding of His Word.
I was already well into my second decade in the ministry when I encountered the Doctrines of Grace and felt their powerful impact on my soul. I have written a short article about it here. Part 2 here. It certainly was an unlikely and unexpected journey of discovery. - JS
