Approach the King of Grace BOLDLY

From Spiritual Growth by A.W. Pink

The need for increased grace is real and imperative. An active nature such as man’s must either grow worse or better, and therefore we should be as deeply concerned about the increase of grace as we should be cautious against the weakening of our graces. The infusion of grace into a soul swiftly evokes the enmity of the flesh. The Christian life is a pulling against the current of the flesh from within and the world from without, and they who row against these powerful streams must row fiercely and continuously. [The quality of our service, in part, depends on this fierce fight for increased grace]. We are invited to approach the throne of grace boldly, and to drink deeply from the fountain of “the exceeding riches of his grace.” "God is able to make all grace abound toward you." (2 Cor. 9:8)

We must take the Lord’s warning in His parable seriously: the man who did not improve his talent, lost it.
