No Merit

“Our Lord takes the ground that there can be no merit, in the absolute meaning of the word, in the creature before the Creator. No man can perform a service in such an independent, unassisted style and manner,as to make God his debtor….The creature is an absolute debtor to his Creator, and his Creator comes under no obligations to him by¬†anything that he can do.”

-W.G.T. Shedd, From his “Sermons to the Spiritual Man”, P.129,131
