Ephesians 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
God is at work in our lives. He saves us in spite of us. He shows that He is a good and gracious God. But I want you to know that He has an ulterior motive.
Not in the bad sense at all but He is going to show those in the future and the entire world what a good God He is. One day they will see that His grace, His kindness was far greater than any of us could ever understand.
I do not deserve my salvation. I have never deserved it. And even if in my heart I believed that I did others that know me know that I do not deserve His goodness and kindness towards me.
He is at work not just saving us but showing off His goodness. He is making a difference. He is changing us. He is showing how He can take something as sinful and bad as me and make me into a trophy of His grace. Oh what a Savior we have!
