“That Is Not Fair”

The Word of God declares that, “The children being not yet born, neither having done good or evil Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated, that the PURPOSE OF GOD according to election might stand” (Romans 9:11).

Man, who makes a god in his own image, when he hears this blessed truth says, “That is not fair, God is unrighteous to treat people this way”.

But God answers, “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy” (Romans 9:15).

Man can accuse God of being unjust, and unfair, but we will make no apologies or defend Him. We just bow and submit to Him, for we know that he is debtor to none.

If it were not for His mercy none would be saved at all, for all are sinners.

  1. Some will make election to salvation a weapon to aim and fire at God as to why he is not a saved man. If such were concerned about who should, or who should not be saved, they would have sought to be on the side of the saved and not to stand it out with God.

  2. The real problem for the creature (the man) lies in his pride which produces unbelief in God. Thinking he’s something when God Almighty clearly declares he’s NOTHING. Until this “pride” is divinely removed by the grace of God through His Holy Spirit in regeneration, the heart will forever remain in darkness though the creature claims he can see the light. And truth be told is this is simply the work of God as Paul so eloquently declares, “for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth” (Romans 1:16), and this is 100% all of God – the sinner merely receives His mercy through His grace 100%.

  3. All The Glory Belongs To The Lord Our God, The Work Of Salvation Is His And His Alone, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
