Universalist Quote of the Day #192

“Do we, while seeking thus to enforce the idea that we are to work out our own salvation, forget the divine assistance?  If the idea were put before us that we had a power independent of God, we should at once repudiate it, and confess that whatever qualities we had of virtue and goodness, they came from Him, who, as he has called us to be his soldiers, will help us to victory.  It is only as we remember this that a bright and hopeful aspect can be imparted to our Christian life.  We can find spirit and comfort to grow in grace as we dwell on the promise that through the Father’s love we shall come off more than conquerors.”

–Rev. A.G. Rogers
