Its Not In Us Nor From Us

God”s choice proceeds not from anything in us, or anything from us, but solely from His own sovereign pleasure.  Once more, in Romans 11:5, we read of “a remnant according to the election of grace.”  There it is, plain enough; election itself is of grace and grace is unmerited favor, something for which we had no claim upon God whatsoever.
