Rutherford: rich in grace

Saturday, March 23, 2019
    But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
    —Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)
    Every man thinketh he is rich enough in grace, till he take out his purse, and... then he findeth it but poor and light in the day of a heavy trial. I found I had not enough to bear my expenses, and I should have fainted, if want and penury had not chased me to the store-house of all.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, Feb. 20, 1637, p. 193 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 2:4-5; Acts 15:11; Rom. 3:24; Eph. 2:8-9; Tit. 2:11; 3:4-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You distribute Your grace lavishly.
