Why God Loved and Saved Me

He loved me,
   Not for what I've done,
   Not for what I merit,
   But for His own reason.

He saved me,
   Not because I sought him,
   Not because I wanted,
   But because he loved me.

But God, who is rich in mercy, 
because of His great love that He had for us, 
made us alive with the Messiah 
even though we were dead in trespasses. 
You are saved by grace!
   --Ephesians 2:4-5 HCSB

Thank God, he chose to love me in spite of my sin and rebellion. I'd have no hope if he hadn't.
