1 Pt 2:10

"Once you were not a (chosen) people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received Mercy" 1Pet 2:10

If there is a question about what one might be able to do in life to earn the love of God, it should be dismissed.  God in simple mercy chose to send Jesus -- to pay our debts -- so that when we turn away from evil, a hand is waiting to help us out of the pit; the very hand of God.

He is by nature merciful, not requiring man's death in sin and separation -- as we so justly deserve.  And He chose us, despite all that unworthiness.  

What can I do?!!

"Search me o God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."  Ps 139:23-24
