I have gained tremendous respect for David Powlison over the years. He seems to be one of the few level headed Biblical counselors among a confusing lot. In this message he talks about a very challenging subject that we all have, or will, face in our lives, either ourselves, or in counseling others: Our suffering and God’s grace.
Preaching at Sinclair Ferguson’s pulpit at First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC, Iain Murray looked at Genesis 3, where in light of the promise of death for sin, God stayed his hand of punishment and extended an amazing gift of grace to Adam and to mankind.
Grudem looks at the Doctrine of Common Grace, which is the grace God shows to all men without partiality, and draws out a fine discussion of application.
