Herman Bavinck: The Covenant of Grace

This is a great one liner that really summarizes Herman Bavinck’s description and definition of the covenant of grace in contrast with the covenant of works.  This could be called one of the overarching themes of Bavinck’s theology as a whole.

“The covenant of grace does not depend upon the obedience of human beings.”

Herman Bavinck, Holy Spirit, Church, and New Creation ed. John Bolt, trans. John Vriend (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2008), 269.
