A Work of Grace

“…man will not renounce his self-righteousness till he sees his sinfulness. …As long as it is possible for us to swim on the bladders of our own righteousness we will never take the life-boat of Christ’s righteousness.  We can only be driven to free grace by sheer stress of weather; and as long as our leaky barque of self-will only keeps us above the flood, we will hold to it. It is a miracle of grace to make a man see himself, so as to loathe himself, and confess the impossibility of being saved by his own works. Yet, till this is done, faith in Jesus is impossible…” — C.H. Spurgeon sermon “The Monster Dragged to Light”

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
