grace for the undeserving

“There is a type of love that arises in response to the beauty, value and other commendable qualities of its recipient. Grace is a different kind of love, one that exists although there is nothing commendable in the recipient. Grace only functions as such if its objects are the undeserving and the unable – those who have absolutely nothing to recommend them as a candidate for God’s favor. Grace is magnified when I see myself as undeserving.”

– Will Metzger
