quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer: The only man who has the right to say that he is justified by grace alone is the man who has left all to follow Christ. with background image: photo of author Dietrich Bonhoeffer with quote

The only man who has the right to say that he is justified by grace alone is the man who has left all to follow Christ.

--Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Longer Version:

The only man who has the right to say that he is justified by grace alone is the man who has left all to follow Christ. Such a man knows that the call to discipleship is a gift of grace, and that the call is inseparable from the grace. But those who try to use this grace as a dispensation from following Christ are simply deceiving themselves.
