Have you ever thought about it? The word drenched. To be completely covered in something. Drenched in water or more recently probably sweat...but what about grace? I'm talking about a grace so heavy, so strong, that even in your sin it draws you to it and gives you what you need to accept Christ. I don't know that we are always aware of this kind of grace - or maybe we just forget about it. This is the grace that we have at the "beginning of salvation" and it is essentially the grace we still have years down the road. I don't know that I believe that grace "evolves" we just call it something different. After having a taste of this heavy grace (a molasses grace, if you will...) you won't go back to the way you where...you want to press on to swim deeper and deeper into it. I know, I know, I'm missing something right? What about those who backslide? I didn't say that it was going to be easy....there are always things to draw you away from it.....but they don't give you what you're looking for - once you've had that taste you'll always be wanting more of it. That's what I've got so far....Amo Dei.
