“TO HIM BE THE GLORY” [Rom 11:30-36]

“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” vs36

All glory goes to God in salvation. There is not one drop goes to us. We are not saved because we are special, but because He has mercy on us: it is mercy entirely.

First, we Gentiles got mercy through the disobedience of the Jews [vs30]. “As you once disobeyed God, but now have received mercy through their disobedience.” God used it to stretch out His hands to us, as He had promised, and He gets glory by saving OTHERS when sinners pass Him by. He is not to be stopped or hindered, but mercy will keep on saving, even when rejected, to spite those who spite it and to provoke some to jealousy. God is not interested in the man-made gospel of His helplessness! God’s gospel saves everyone predestined, and it cannot be hindered by man’s sin. Grace is supernatural and far superior to man, even as the heavens are higher than the earth.

Take courage and do not be distracted. Grace uses the rejection of some to accomplish its purpose, even as the hardening of others causes us to fear God.

Secondly, every Jew and Gentile is in disobedience, imprisoned by God, so that He might have mercy on the elect [vs31-32]. “So they too [Jews] have now disobeyed, resulting in mercy to you, so that they also now may receive mercy. For God has imprisoned all in disobedience so that He may have mercy on all.” We are helpless, depraved, and irresponsible, so that He might swoop down in mercy. Man WILL understand that he perishes because of his own fault, and he’s saved entirely by grace. Mercy opened the prison and set us free! Mercy opened the eyes and made us see. Mercy is praised in everything - 100% pure, sovereign, mercy.

Mercy is the sweetest sound, and those who despise it simply do not know God.

Thirdly, nobody’s ever given to God first [vs33-35]! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counselor? Or who has ever first given to Him, and has to be repaid?” Nobody ever made God love them or took the first step. Nobody ever came to Christ without 100% IRRESISTIBLE grace; it was never man contributing one thing; it was always all of God.

Paul labored in Romans chapter 1-11 to show salvation is by grace - that we were dead in sins, justified by faith, made holy by the Spirit, and all because grace came to us in election [Rom 9:11]. It was never the result of God responding to us. It was God initiating, drawing, and calling; it was God redeeming by grace alone, and grace acting unsought and unbought! It is never because one man is better than another [Rom 9:16]; it is sovereign mercy.

Finally, God is to be glorified, so all glory to His name [vs36]! “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” Let Him be praised forever, and this is the gospel: It is not man plus God but God alone; it is not grace plus works but grace alone; it is not freewill or national heritage; it is saving grace that chooses, redeems, and gives faith; it is God to whom the glory belongs.
