The undeserved bounty of Heaven

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and not of yourselves; it is a gift of God, not of works, so no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9

He endeavours to acquire and maintain a just conviction of his great unworthiness; and to keep in continual remembrance, that whatever distinguishes himself from others, is not properly his own, but that he is altogether indebted for it to the undeserved bounty of Heaven.
-William Wilberforce (365 days with Wilberforce)
