Despising God’s Grace

“We despise grace when we observe the law with the expectation to be justified by it.  The law is good, holy and profitable; but it justifies not.  He, then, that keeps the law in order to be justified thereby, rejects grace, denys Christ, despises His sacrifice, and will not be saved by this inestimable price, but will satisfy for his own sins through the righteousness of the law…This man blasphemes and despises the grace of God”.

Luther, quoted by John Brown in his commentary on Galatians, P.98
