This divine and marvelous Fountain!

(Octavius Winslow, "From Grace to Glory" 1864)

"By the grace of God I am what I am!" 1 Cor. 15:10

GRACE is one of the most precious and significant
terms of the Bible.

Grace tells of God's free and unconditional choice
of a people, whom He everlastingly loved.

It speaks . . .
  of His mercy to the miserable,
  of His pardon to the guilty,
  of His favor to the lost,
  of His free and boundless love to poor sinners.

None are saved but those who are saved by . . .
  electing grace,
  sovereign grace,
  free grace.

Also, all the precious streams of present . . .
  and hope
flow from this divine and marvelous Fountain!

What a heart is His! The Lord of all grace . . .
  all pardoning grace,
  all accepting grace,
  all sanctifying grace,
  all comforting grace . . .
to the ungracious,
to the unworthy,
to the poor,
to the bankrupt,
to the vile,
to the sinful.

"By the grace of God I am what I am!"

Marvelous declaration!
