Future Grace - John Piper

chapter four: the life that’s left

We learn that grace is an unmistakable priority in the Christian life… …that grace will abide with us when we lay the Bible down and go about our daily living

What does it mean to strengthen ourselves in the Lord?

To be strengthened by grace is to be strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit, for His power is a measure of His grace.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 9:12

To be able to endure, we must strengthen ourselves in God through faith in His future grace. Through this, our lives become a grace, lives led through enjoyment and faith in the Higher Pleasure and Treasure of God, and the future grace He promises.
