When we consider God’s salvation of sinners, if we properly understand man’s dead in sins, totally depraved state then we can easily see that our only hope must be in God’s unmerited favor and grace. In our sinful natures, there is none good, none righteous, no not one. Man is not sick or drowning, but he is dead with no ability to come unto God. Then, when we see how wretched we are in our nature, what a sweet sound when we hear the message of salvation by grace alone and the finished work of Jesus Christ and God’s incomprehensible love towards us!
