A Gift That We Have Received.

“If our being children of God depended in slightest measure upon us, we could never be sure that we had attained the high estate. But as a matter of fact it does not depend upon us; it depends only upon God. It is not a reward that we have earned but a gift that we have received.” (182)

Taken from Machen’s What is Faith?
