The victory of faith

“Actual progress [in the Christian life] will show itself concretely just in this: that we understand better and better that we are absolutely dependent on grace. As Luther said at the end of his life, ‘It is verily true; we are beggars!’ That is the only sense in which we can speak of the victory of faith.”

—Karl Barth, Credo: A Presentation of the Chief Problems of Dogmatics with Reference to the Apostles’ Creed (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1936), p. 202.

I like this, absolutely dependent on grace. Not independent as hog on ice. Thanks.
