We often grow accustomed to the concept of Christ, especially as it pertains to our ongoing sanctification. As Sinclair said, the longer we go in our Christian life, the more we ought to recognize our need for God's grace in the days ahead. Spend some time reflection on your walk with Christ and ask Him to reveal to you the ways in which you have grown accustomed to His grace.
