CQOD: 02/16/06 -- Calvin: no reliance on good works

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 16, 2006
    For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
    -- Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)

    Justification is withdrawn from works, not that no good works may be done, or that what is done may be denied to be good, but that we may not rely upon them, glory in them, or ascribe salvation to them.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot save myself.
