Thomas Watson – Setting the Crown on Free Grace

13 Jul

When we have done our best, we must vanish away in our own thoughts, and transfer the glory of all to God. The apostle Paul said, “I labored more abundantly than them all” (1 Cor. 15:10). One would think this speech savored of pride; but the apostle pulls off the crown from his own head, and sets it upon the head of free grace, “Yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me!” Constantine used to write the name of Christ over the door, so should we over our duties.
