PURE UNMISTAKABLE GRACE!
No man has the right to be a son of God
It is an act of pure unmistakable Grace
If we are born into God’s family,
it is a miracle of mercy.
It is one of the ever-blessed exhibitions of the infinite love of God,
that has set itself upon us.
If you are this day an heir of heaven,
remember, man, you were once the slave of hell.
Once you wallowed in the mire.
If you should adapt a swine to be your child,
you would not then have performed an act of greater compassion
than when God adopted you.
And if an angel could exalt a gnat to equal dignity with himself,
yet this would not be as great a privilege as that which God has conferred on you.
He has taken you from the dunghill,
and he has set you among princes!
You have lain among the pots,
but he has made you as a dove whose wings are covered with silver,
and her feathers with yellow gold.
Remember that this is pure grace--
Look back to the hole of the pit from where you were dug,
And the miry clay from where you were drawn.
