Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
What a blessing it is to know that God hasn't called us because of what we have already done (none of us would be worthy if that was the case!), but according to His purpose and His grace. Also, He called us before we were born--before the world was even created. It is not of anything we have done or could do!
