This Is Salvation!

Here is a clear and definitive statement of salvation - this is how God receives all the glory as the author and finisher of our faith, which leaves you and me absolutely no room to boast:

Thy grace has given me faith in the cross by which thou has reconciled thyself to me and me to thee, drawing me by thy great love, reckoning me as innocent in Christ though guilty myself.

-Valley of Vision,  ed. Arthur Bennett, p. 171

Valley of Vision is one of my favorites. Have a leather bound copy on my desk right now in fact! Thanks for posting.
