More Willing

“Our holy performances, do not render God more willing than He is already to show mercy or give grace to us;  but they are means of rendering ourselves more and more willing to receive His mercy and grace.  We must, then, never depend on our own good works, but always on the spotless righteousness of Christ, and on the gracious promises of God, for all the effects of His mercy and favor.”

_John Colquhoun, From his Treatise on the Law and the Gospel, P.290
