Mercy

So it is God who decides to show mercy. We can neither choose it nor work for it. ROMANS 9:16

The fallacy of gaining salvation by human effort remains as strong as ever – people still think good intentions are the key to unlock the door to eternal life. By the time they get to try the lock, they will find their key does not fit. Others might imagine that their efforts are building an invisible ladder to heaven made up of service, family, position, reputation, good work, and desire, although none of these rungs will support a feather. People are so busy trying to reach God that they completely miss the truth that God has already reached down to them. We cannot earn Gods mercy – if we could, it would not be mercy.
