Glorious Grace

Glorious Grace

” … the grace of God shines gloriously in the way of justifying a sinner by the righteousness of Jesus Christ: … In this way all is of God, and nothing of the creature’s procuring, and therefore it is of grace. Grace always shines most brightly where man appears least; every thing that tends to advance the power and efficacy of man’s working, always hinders the shining forth of the glory of the grace of God; and in this way of justifying us through the righteousness of Christ, grace shines forth most graciously, because it is all of God: we do nothing in it.”

Robert Traill, 1642-1716, was a Scottish Presbyterian pastor. The above quote is taken from the first of six sermons that he preached on Galatians 2:21.

More of Robert Traill’s sermons, along with those of other Scottish pastors and preachers from the 1600’s, can be found in the right-hand side bar under the heading of “Reformed Sermons.”
