“And as Isaiah predicted, ‘If the Lord of hosts had not left us offspring, we would have been like Sodom and become like Gomorrah.’”
Paul notes, quoting from Isaiah, that because of sin, we all deserve to be treated like Sodom and Gomorrah. But God had mercy and spared some in these cities from his wrath. Similarly, just like he should destroy us all because of our sin, he gives us children to perpetuate the human race. That’s only because of his rich grace and mercy.
If you’ve received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then you know his rich grace and mercy, You know God has give you mercy and that you’ve not received what you deserve (eternal separation for him), but you’ve also been given what you don’t deserve (eternal communion with him).
Today, spend some time giving thanks to God for his rich, amazing, powerful grace and mercy in your life in Christ. He is the reason you are going to heaven.
He is worthy of our praise.
