I watched one of the best sermons ever yesterday: http://www.marshillchurch.org/media/religionsaves/grace. I say that a lot about Mark Driscoll's sermons but they really are amazing. One of the aspects of grace he talked on was persevering grace, a concept that I'm sure a whole lot of christians struggle from time to time and the thing that he says he struggles most with out of all things.
Anyways, just thinking about this and God-pokes I'm noticing that God is constantly active in my life, poking, whispering in my ear, drawing my attention. His persevering grace is amazing.
