The Poison of Works

One drop of the poison of man's works let fall into a vessel full of God's grace, deprives grace of its character. God will not allow that man shall spoil His gracious act of forgiveness by any mixture of works, for “If by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace.” (Rom. 11:6.)
H. F. Witherby, The Gospel of our Salvation, p. 9 (available online at http://stempublishing.com/authors/HF_Witherby/HFW_Gospel01.html)

Though dear Mr. Witherby is not telling me anything that I have not been told before, I am finding his turn of phrase to be quite arresting at times. I have restrained myself from sharing a number of his quotations online.

A book that I would gladly put in the hands of any Christian.
