The Grace of God

“Let us think much, and make much, of the grace of God; let us beware of receiving it in vain; let us pray God to prosper it in our hearts, that we may bring forth much fruit. We see how grace wrought in St. Paul: it made him labour, suffer, and work righteousness almost above man’s nature. This was not his own doing; it was not through his own power. He says himself, ‘Yet not I, but the grace of God which was in me.’ God’s grace was ‘sufficient for him.’ It was its triumph in him, that it made him quite another man from what he was before. May God’s grace be efficacious in us also.”
~John Henry Newman
