 The free grace of God! by John Newton


[b]The free grace of God![/b]

(Letters of John Newton)

"By the grace of God I am what I am!"
1 Corinthians 15:10

The true Christian is sensible and mindful of
indwelling sin. He confesses that in everything
he comes exceedingly short, and that his best
services are not only defective--but defiled. He
accounts himself as an unprofitable servant--and
is abased in his own eyes. He knows that all that
distinguishes him from the vilest of men--is the
free grace of God!

He derives all his hope and comfort, as well as his
strength--from Jesus, whom he has known, received
and loved, and to whom he has committed his soul.
He renounces all confidence in the flesh, and esteems
all things as loss--compared to the surpassing greatness
of knowing Jesus Christ his Lord, for whose sake he has
lost all things--considering them rubbish, that he may
gain Christ!

Far removed from self-esteem.

We can't help but have a sense of our vileness when we consider the person of God, and holiness being His characteristic, and our absence of that holiness.

Thank God for His free grace.
