No doctrine in the Bible is more counterintuitive that the doctrine of grace. We fight against it because it runs against the grain of everything we instinctively believe. Graces forces us to confront two very difficult truths:
1)    There is nothing at all we can do to contribute to our own salvation.
2)    If God doesn’t save us, we will never be saved.
Basically grace says, “You’re a hopeless mess”  and “Only God can help you now.” And in our natural state we would rather do anything than admit those two things.Which is why, finally, we will never accept the notion of grace unless God opens our eyes to see the truth about ourselves.
We need grace in order to receive grace!
