OH! SWEET GRACE, BLESSED GRACE!
"For by grace are you saved."
We are saved by grace-free grace, rich grace, sovereign grace, distinguishing grace-without one atom of works, without one grain of creature merit, without anything of the flesh.
Oh! sweet grace, blessed grace! Oh! what a help-what a strength-what a rest for a poor toiling, striving, laboring soul-to find that grace has done all the work-to feel that grace has triumphed in the cross of Christ-to find that nothing is required, nothing is needed, nothing is to be done!
By J.C. Philpot
