It is added, “purpose and grace which he gave us” -not “which he sold us,” “offered us,” but “which he gave us”

Spurgeon 36. Again, in order to shut out everything like boasting, the whole is spoken of as a gift. Do notice that; lest (for we are such straying sheep in this matter)-lest we should still slip out of the field, it is added, “purpose and grace which he gave us” -not “which he sold us,” “offered us,” but “which he gave us.” He must have a word here which shall be a death-blow to all merit,- “which he gave us” -it was given; and what can be freer than a gift, and what more evidently of grace?
