Henry: our dependence

Tuesday, December 1, 2015
    Commemoration of Charles de Foucauld, Hermit, Servant of the Poor, 1916
    This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
    —Romans 3:22-24 (NIV)
    We have a necessary and constant dependence upon God; all our natural actions depend upon his providence, all our spiritual actions upon his grace.
    ... Matthew Henry (1662-1714), An Exposition of the Old and New Testaments [1828], Pr. 20, in loc. v. 24 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 3:22-24; Gen. 15:6; John 6:44-45; Rom. 5:8; 1 Cor. 10:13; 15:10; Eph. 1:11-12; 2:8-9; Phil. 2:12-13; 1 Pet. 5:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, this moment I rely on Your grace.
