"These two aspects of God's grace - access and power - set us up to understand what it means to grow in favour with God. At the heart of growing in favour are two aspects: 1. The pursuit of God, the practice of coming before God through the "new and living way" (Hebrews 10:20) that Christ had made available to us and 2. Receiving in God's Presence, measures of His own nature that empower us to be conformed into the image of the Son He loves".
