On another thread Havensdad said... I want to ask other Calvinist here what it was like when they 1st gave themself over to fully embrace the Doctrines of Grace. Once a month I meet with other Reformed pastors to fellowship pray and talk about our ministy. We also read a book and talk about it. A few months ago we all read "What's so great about the Doctrines of Grace. This is a very good short read and overview of the doctrines. It is something good to pass out for those that are just beginning to understand the doctrines we love. In the book the writer told of this feeling that came over him just after he gave himself over to the doctrines. He said it was like a new birth, or maybe he said..rebirth feeling. (i do not have my book with me). Like he was saved all over again. When I read this I said..YES YES...I can relate. I recall it brought me to my knees and I cried for an hour or more. Now the interesting part is this. Each pastor in our fellowship told of the same story. How about other Calvinist? What happened to you if anything? Please share your story.
