“Did God call me on account of my holy life? Or on account of my pharisaical religion? Or on account of my prayers, fastings, and works? Never. Well, it’s certain God didn’t call me on account of my blasphemies, persecutions, oppressions. What prompted Him to call me? Grace alone.” — Martin Luther
It is only by the grace of God that any of us has been saved. And it is only by the grace of God that He allows sinners like us to serve Him. Never lose sight of the grace of God.
God’s grace is one of His greatest attributes. Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8-9, “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.”
