How should we respond to God’s redeeming love? 2. To what should we bend our energies as we consider the future? 3. Where should our focus lie as we ask God to order our lives in the light of His overwhelming grace? These are vitally important questions and, as the remainder of this chapter confirms, they all find answers in a right understanding of the matter of true success .
