Grace in Sanctification

Almost a decade ago, I visited the campus of a very well-known non-profit organization with the intention of meeting with a teen magazine editor. Being very naive and ignorant to the ways of the music industry, I assumed that scoring this meeting would be a shoe-in to "success". Fortunately for me, the magazine editor was extremely gracious and took nearly four hours out of his work day to meet with me and my brother to discuss our musical endeavors. Though he was one of the nicest and most genuine people I had ever met, I soon became aware of the awkwardness of the situation. Because he was so kind, I felt quite free to share about my own personal struggles with the christian life and pieces of my story. In the end, my brother and I walked away with a ton of free stuff and a much improved understanding of why this magazine was probably not our best approach at that point. As stated by the first words spoken to us by the editor, " can I help you guys?" 1
