You Owe the Whole to Sovereign Grace!

Believer! Only the grace of God makes you to differ from the world around you!

You once were dead in trespasses and sins. You moved as a living carcass with a lifeless soul. Your every step was hellward. Your every moment hurried you towards endless woe.

Your life was   ignorance,   rebellion,   slavery,   disgrace.

But now the darkness is dispersed, and true light shines. You see the cross! You stand in a new world of spiritual delight. You are a new creation of  thought,  affection,  hope,  desire.  You live for God; to God; with God; in God.

But whence the change? Did it result your own resolve? Did rolling years beget this wisdom? Oh, no!

You owe the whole to sovereign grace!

God, of His own free will, looked down with favor on your ruined soul. His grace gave you, as a jewel, to His Son; and gave His Son to be your uttermost salvation!

[Henry Law]


Ephesians 2:5 ... Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Ephesians 2:8 ... For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
2 Timothy 1:9 ... Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
Hebrews 7:25 ... Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.❤
