Where Our Good Works Come From

A reason why we cannot be saved by works,—namely, because we do them not in or by our own strength; which is necessary we should do, if we will be saved by them, or justified by them. “But this is not so,” saith the apostle; “for we are the workmanship of God,” etc.;—all our works are wrought in us, by full and effectual, undeserved grace.

~John Owen

from Of Communion With Godvolume 2 of Works, page 18
