Repentance, Grace & Life Eternal

Where true repentance is, there is the grace of God.
Where the grace of God is, there is Christ.
Where Christ is, there are His merits.
Where His merits are, there is satisfaction for sin.
Where satisfaction for sin is, there is righteousness.
Where righteousness is, there is a joyful and tranquil conscience.
Where a tranquil conscience is, there is the Holy Spirit.
Where the Holy Spirit is, there is the entire Most Holy Trinity.
Where the Holy Trinity is, there is eternal life.
Therefore, where true repentance is, there is eternal life.
Where true repentance is not present, there is neither the remission of sins,
                                                             nor the grace of God,
                                                             nor Christ.
                                                Neither His merits,
                                                             nor satisfaction for sin,
                                                             nor righteousness,

Happy Advent! O Come, Immanuel!

ALMIGHTY God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty, to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen. (The Collect for the First Sunday, and every day, of Advent)
