Works: and Our Salvation


William Wickham being appointed by King Edward to build a stately church, wrote in the windows, 'This work made William Wickham.' When charged by the king for assuming the honour of that work to himself as the author, whereas he was only the overseer, he answered that he meant not that he made the work, but that the work made him, having before been very poor, and then in great credit. Lord, when we read in thy Word that we must work out our own salvation, thy meaning is not that our salvation should be the effect of our work, but our work the evidence of our salvation.
