…and it really is all about Him; not because He is an egomaniac, but because He knows that when we make life about “us” we are incredibly miserable, self-centered souls.
He invites us into a relationship with Him, not so we can be humans “doing” all the work. We can’t earn anything from God. He offers freedom from all our efforts to work harder. In Him, and Him alone, we can be humans “being.”
It’s all about grace – undeserved favor; and mercy – undeserved acquittal!
