"My grace is sufficient for thee" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Before Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan wrote Grace Abounding-from his jail cell. John was not imprisoned for his youthful rebellion, but for preaching the gospel after he heard a word from God.

"For though, as yet, I was nothing but a poor painted hypocrite, yet I loved to be talked of as one that was truly godly."

For many years, John-like all Christians-struggled with his sinful nature. In Grace Abounding, he honestly declares his shortcomings, and knows that he must overcome them to fulfill his destiny.

"But one morning, when I was again at prayer,

and trembling under the fear of this,

that no word of God could help me,

that piece of a sentence darted in upon me,

'My grace is sufficient.'"

Throughout John's life he realized how vulnerable he was, and how great God's grace is.

First, I confessed I was fallen, but not fallen away....

Secondly, I confessed that I had put Jesus Christ to shame by my sin,

but not to open shame....
