When I look back on my 40 years of Christian experience, I can see the hand of God in everything along the way. It was His work all along, and it was nothing of myself. And looking forward, pressing toward the mark as it were, I am more determined than ever to grow in grace, to live in a holy, sanctified manner. I am more determined than ever to do this. Do any of you reading this forum ever feel that way? Now this IS a theological question, and yes I am setting a trap for some, depending on their answer. It may be thinly veiled for some of you. Nevertheless, I will bring in a theological issue on this depending on the responses I get.
