“We believers must ask ourselves why we have come to faith while many of our friends have not. Did we exercise faith in Christ because we are more intelligent than they are?” asks R. C. Sproul in Grace Unknown. “Did we respond to the gospel positively because we are better or more virtuous?” “We all know the answers to these questions,” continues Sproul. “I cannot adequately explain why I came to faith in Christ and some of my friends did not. I can only look to the glory of God’s grace toward me, a grace I did not deserve then and do not deserve now.” In response to this grace, we can do no better than sing the familiar hymn by Isaac Watts that begins like this: Alas! And did my Savior bleed? And did my Sovereign die? Would he devote that sacred head For such a worm as I? Was it for crimes that I have done He groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity! Grace unknown! And love beyond degree!
