Robbing God of His Glory

September 7, 2010

“Let us then ascribe the whole work of grace to the pleasure of God’s will.  God did not choose us because we were worthy, but by choosing us He makes us worthy.  Proud men are apt to assume and arrogate too much to themselves, in being sharers of God.  While many cry out against church-sacrilege, they are in the meantime guilty of a far greater sacrilege, in robbing God of His glory, while they go to set the crown of salvation upon their own head.  But we must resolve all into God’s purpose.  The signs of salvation are in the saints, but the cause of salvation is in God” (emphasis mine).

Thomas Watson, All Things For Good, p. 124.
