For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all. 33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! Romans 11:32-33
If the riches of God's mercy in Jesus Christ were enough for me, I would see there is nothing I can lose that can take away what he has gained, and nothing I can gain that can reverse what I lost in my disobedience. And then I would fear no pain, no man, nothing.
