Grace — It’s not about us!

A long and wicked life followed by five minutes of perfect grace gets you into Heaven. An equally long life of decent living and good works followed by one outburst of taking the name of the Lord in vain – then have a heart attack at that moment and be damned for eternity. Is that the system? ~Robert A. Heinlein

In point of fact that is NOT the system! God is not lying in wait looking for a lapse. Grace is not something you live up to it is something you live with. Grace always says more about God than it says about us. That is the point that Mr. Heinlein didn’t get.
