Sometimes Christian bloggers, because we teach God’s Word, can come across as know-it-alls. Occasionally we even fool ourselves into thinking we know more than we actually do. Thankfully the Lord graciously humbles us when we get cocky, reminding us of our limitations before Him.
In particular, we have no idea why the Lord chooses any of us for salvation. None of us has done anything to attract Him to us — much less to merit His favor! Why would a holy God, Who has every reason to condemn the lot of us, condescend to bring any of us to a saving knowledge of Himself? If we’re honest, we see no reason for such mercy. It should baffle even the most astute Bible scholar.
But, as today’s hymn tells us, we can embrace this question by placing our confidence in Him. We don’t know all the answers, but we know Him. We especially know His faithfulness to His people. Maybe that’s all we need to know.
