Hilarious Grace

13994855395_5033ac5af6_b

He does not come to see if we are good: he comes to disturb the caked conventions by which we pretend to be good. He does not come to see if we are sorry: he knows our repentance isn’t worth the hot air we put into it. He does not come to count anything… He cares not even a fig for any part of our record, good or bad. He comes only to forgive. For free… We are saved gratis, by grace. We do nothing and we deserve nothing; it is all, absolutely and without qualification, one huge, hilarious gift.

–Robert Farrar Capon
Kingdom, Grace, Judgment
