QUOTE (John Knox) – Nov 24

November 24, 2013

English: John Knox

“For herein stands the doubt whether that the unthankfulness of God’s children after they have once received mercy, grace and large benefits from God’s hands, doth so alienate the mind of God from them, that He beareth to them no manner of love, till they turn to Him by repentance. The contrary hereof we hold and affirm, not fearing to avow, that repentance, as it is joined to faith, which is the free gift of God, so it is the effect of God’s constant love toward them and no cause of the same.”

~ John Knox

In honor of John Knox, the Scottish clergyman and leader of the Protestant Reformation, who died on this day in 1572.
