Grace: God's Work in Us

Bernadette Roberts 

“This is what the doctrine of Grace is all about; it affirms God's continuous work in us, a work we cannot see with the conscious mind and rarely experience.  This is why what can be done on the conscious level is nothing compared to God's work (Grace) on a wholly unconscious level.  Altogether this means that what we give is not of great consequence; it is what God takes or consumes that is important.  So we have to be content with where we are NOW.  When we realize that God wants to take something from us (first on the unconscious level), then we cooperate by surrendering it, by letting it go.”
