BECAUSE WE ARE REBORN

from monergism books.

"There has been so much emphasis upon decision, receiving, yielding, being willing, and giving ourselves that salvation is regarded almost exclusively in terms of our activity... [But] We do not give birth to ourselves, we are not reborn because we believe. We believe because we are reborn."

--Martin-Lloyd Jones.

Quote, "The earthen-ness of the vessel does not take away from the excellency of the treasure."
