Grace induced Sweat?

My thoughts lately have been revolving around a sermon I listened to on the importance of discipline in growing as a Christian. It’s probably the sort of message we don’t hear enough of these days, and after he spends the first half just talking about examples of discipline in sports and other stuff, this gets really quite good.

A particularly memorable quote was that “grace produces perspiration,” which struck me as being quite a handy way of thinking about the way that grace should motivate us to work hard at serving and honouring God. Listen to the whole last part of the thing for a good explanation of how discipline is quite different from legalism.
