The Quote

God rejoices to bestow His grace upon us, not because we are worthy, but because we are so utterly unworthy.  Our only claim to His mercy is or great need. E.G.W.  The Ministry of Healing 161

The impulse to try to change God's mind is as ancient as Cain, as persistent as Sarah's laughter, as quick as Moses' grasping credit for bringing water from the rock.  Our words betray us.  "Make me like one of Your hired servants," we insist, speaking the language of merit so stubbornly that we miss the warmth of our Father's welcoming embrace...  It's almost as if we were running away from the gospel, as if we were afraid of grace, not wanting to be that rich, that forgiven, that assured.-p. 41
