Past and Future Grace

From John Piper:

“The biblical role of past grace–especially the cross–is to guarantee the certainty of future grace: ‘He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all [past grace], will he not also freely give us all things with him [future grace]?’ (Romans 8:32, RSV). Trusting in future grace is the enabling strength of our obedience.”
