Grace and Supplication

Ron Crawford

Grace? What is so important about this concept? The question is understandable in light of the placid manner through which grace is viewed in the church world. Many recognizable quotes and gospel songs freely utilize the word grace. The message of these serves to further enforce the incomplete and faulty mindset we have about this mighty dynamic of the Lord God. / The old Pentecostal hymn admonishes us to ?launch out into the deep and let the shoreline go.? Herein is the drive of the pioneers of any movement of God. Grace led them into the new, just as it beckons to us today. This is the theme expressed throughout both the Old and New Testaments. It is the final admonition written within the Word of God, and our continuing marching order of faith.
