But it is hard to read. The content she covers is shocking. She leads the reader through some territory that is uncharted for many readers, Christian or non. She does so with a boldness and ease that can be quite disorienting to the reader. Frankly, at times, the subject she covers and the manner in which she does so is downright offensive. There were times I argued out loud with this book. And I am so happy, and eternally blessed, that the objections I offered arose from my flesh and not the Spirit who is in me.
"Perhaps our greatest problem (as Christians) is not the reality of our sin, but our unbiblical expectations of what Christian growth should look like."
This "perhaps" finds itself to be shown to be a resounding "most definitely" throughout Extravagant Grace. Why did God choose to sanctify believers progressively? If His only goal in sanctification is for us to sin less, why doesn't He remove all temptations, struggles, sinful desires, etc...to ensure our sinless Christian life? If I am His and He is sovereign and His sole desire is for me to stop sinning, then why do I still sin at all?
Duguid answers these questions with a theology of sanctification that is wholly biblical and historically orthodox yet, for some odd reason, is relatively an alien and offensive concept to so many believers today.Read more ›
1. Makes you weary of this life.
2. Makes you prize Christ more.
3. Puts you to 6 "especial duties"
3. Self-judging. "He passes a sentence on himself."
4. Self-conflicting. He fights against his carnal-self.
5. Self-observing. He watches himself against it.
6. Self-reforming. "A child of God not only finds sin, but drives out sin."
Now believe it or not, that's how God in His graces uses our sin for our good. Does God use our sin to do us good? YES!
Now why am I talking about all this, because Watson is talking about what Barbara Duguid wants to talk about in her book "Extravagant Grace."
She wants to convince you that God uses your sin for your good; that your sin can't separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
She again and again says that our sin makes us prize Christ more, and it's true. But what she is totally missing is that in His grace, God puts us to work. It's grace that helps us to fight against sin. To do the 6 things that Thomas Watson talks about.
That kind of grace is totally missing in "Extravagant Grace" You won't see Paul's cry in Colossians 1:29 "To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me." You won't see Titus 2:11-12, "For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.Read more ›
