"For it is by grace you have been
saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of
God-not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's
workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God
prepared in advance for us to do"
"See, then, poor Sinners who may hear
these words, that they have a relation to you! You are saying, "How
can we become Christians?" Why, you can become Christians by being
created - and there is no other way! "But we cannot create ourselves,"
says one. It is even so! Stand back and quit all pretence of being
creators - and the further you retreat from self-conceit the better -
for it is God who must create you! How I wish that you felt this! "It
would drive us to despair," you say. It might drive you to such
despair as would be the means of your flying to Christ - and that is
precisely what I desire! It would be greatly to your gain if you never
again indulged a shred of hope in your own works and were forced to
accept the Grace of God! I seek not to excite in you a proud activity,
but a humble reliance on the mercy of God and a submissive acceptance
of His plan of salvation by Free Grace. Oh, that this might be done!"
