He replied, “You’ve been given insight into God’s kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it hasn’t been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears.

But by the grace of God I am what I am. 1 Corinthians 15:10 (NIV)

Grace means there is nothing we can do to make God love us more and there is nothing we can do to make God love us less. -Philip Yancey
