1. To understand that we contribute nothing to our salvation is humbling to say the least. How does this truth affect you?
2. Not only do we not contribute to our salvation, but we in no way are owed salvation, it is by God’s mercy alone. This truth has profound implications for how we relate to both God and man. What would you say are the implications?
3. We often think of God’s mercy as a one time act in him justifying us yet we read in Lamentations 3 that his mercies are ‘new every morning.’ Spend some time meditating on Lamentations 3:22-24. How could your day to day be changed by this portion of God’s Word?
