All of divine grace!

“The reformation is never complete in this life, and the more a penitent receives of divine grace, the more he is convinced that ‘it is God who works in’ him ‘both to will and to do of His good pleasure.’ Without the Spirit of Christ we are utterly unable to render any of that service which the law requires for our justification; and if we are regenerated so that we lead good lives, the credit is due, not to us for our justification, but to Him (Jesus Christ), whose is the only righteousness which God will accept as sufficient to honor the law under which we live and by which we shall be tried.”   George Washington Bethune from his book ‘Guilt, Grace and Gratitude’
