Patristic Quote of the Day

What God promises, He Himself performs. He does not promise and another perform, which would no longer be promising, but prophesying. Hence it is "not because of works but because of Him who calls" (Rom. 9:11), lest the result should be their own, not God's, and the reward should be ascribed not to His grace but to their due.—St. Augustine, On the Spirit and the Letter, 1:41
