Love is but its outgoing; sin is but its defiance; grace is but its action on sin; the Cross is but its victory; faith is but its worship

Holiness cannot be separated from love. “Love” says P.T. Forsyth, “is but its (holiness’) outgoing; sin is but its defiance; grace is but its action on sin; the Cross is but its victory; faith is but its worship.”

David F. Wells, The Courage to be Protestant, IVP, 2008, p.241
