Those are charming bells indeed!

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

All that we have received has come to us by the way
of free grace! If our sense of our own unworthiness
is clear, if we know what worse than nothings we are,
what a mass of sin and corruption we are by nature,
we shall never think that we receive anything from
God by the way of merit.

Still our proud hearts need to be told over and over
again that all the blessings we enjoy come to us by
the free and sovereign grace of God!

The bread on your table is flavored with grace.

Your meat has mercy for its sauce.

Every drop of water which cools your tongue tastes of mercy.

Charity clothes you.

Infinite love feeds you.

And as for your spiritual blessings, where are your
streams found, whence do they gush--but from the
inexhaustible fountain of eternal love?

God forbid that we should glory save in the cross of
our Lord Jesus Christ--and in the love which shone
from that cross to such poor, unworthy ones as we

Those are charming bells indeed
--free grace
and dying love!
Through the ivory gate of grace,
all mercies come to sinners.

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