All of Grace

July 15, 2010

First, that the cause wherefore we answer God’s calling, or believe in God, is God’s own grace, which worketh in us this faith by the Holy Ghost, which is given us with his work; for, like as God of his mere grace calleth us outwardly unto himself, so the same—his grace and free love in Jesus Christ—kindleth this faith in us, whereby we answer his heavenly calling.

Robert Rollock, “Treatise of Effectual Calling,” In Select Works of Robert Rollock, 2 vols., ed. William Gunn (Grand Rapids: Reformation Heritage, 2008), 30.
