Here are a few quotes on God’s grace, mercy and greatness

“At the cross, the love of God and the wrath of God shake hands; the mercy of God and the justice of God embrace; and the holiness of God and the sinfulness of humanity appear in stark contrast.” (William P. Farely, from his book – Outrageous Mercy)

“We cannot find God without God. We cannot reach God without God. We cannot satisfy God without God… The decisive part of our seeking is not our human ascent to God, but his descent to us. Without God’s descent there is no human ascent. The secret of the quest lies not in our brilliance but in his grace.” (Os Guinness)

“Never believe anything about yourself or God that makes His grace to you seem anything less than astonishing. Because that’s exactly what it is.” (Randy Alcorn)


“…so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:7).

“Pray to the Lord to keep you low at his feet, for in no other place can you be largely used of him.” (Charles Spurgeon)

“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

“If we are to succeed in living by grace, we must come to terms with the fact that God is sovereign in dispensing His gracious favors, and He owes us no explanation when His actions do not correspond with our system of merits.” (Jerry Bridges)
