Romans 9:16 “It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.”

No matter how we work and strive to live a perfect life…we’ll never come close.  For in Titus 3:5 it says, “He saved us not because of the righteous things we have done, but because of His mercy.”  God’s wonderful and unexplainable mercy is gifted to us before we are even aware of our need.  Malachi 1:2-3 states, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”  To further illustrate this profound concept, Jesus tells us in John 15:16, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you…”  The Lord’s compassion and kindness towards us  is beyond our  mental capacity…His desire to save us, beyond our comprehension.
