It is God’s Work…

“It is God who, by the agency of His own Spirit, through the instrumentality of His own word understood and believed, transforms the character of a condemned felonius slave into that of a beloved and dutiful child.  It is HE who takes ‘the hard and stony heart out of our flesh, and gives us a heart of flesh’.  It is HE who disposes us to venerate, and esteem, and love, and trust Him.  It is HE who enables us cheerfully to obey His commandments, and submit to His appointments.”

-John Brown, from his commentary on 1Peter, P.52
