Scofield: seeking the lost

Thursday, June 11, 2015
    Feast of Barnabas the Apostle
    So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
    —Romans 11:5-6 (NIV)
    Grace is not looking for good men whom it may approve, for it is not grace but mere justice to approve goodness. But it is looking for condemned, guilty, speechless and helpless men whom it may save through faith, then sanctify and glorify.
    ... C. I. Scofield (1843-1921), “The Grace of God”, in The Fundamentals: The Famous Sourcebook of Foundational Biblical Truths, ed. R. A. Torrey, Kregel Academic, 1990, p. 402 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 41:4; 147:3; Matt. 9:12; Mark 2:17; Luke 19:10; Rom. 4:4-5; 7:12; 11:5-6; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; Rev. 3:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I seek You because I am without excuse.
