For as you in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:…
1. That their salvation might be manifestly seen to be by grace.
2. That self-righteous boasting might be excluded.
3. That men might duly appreciate the blessings of His redemptive love.
4. That scope might be afforded for the full display of His mercy.
(C. Neil, M.A.)
