Although we have ample assurance of God’s mercy when we sin unavoidably, we cannot count on that mercy when we sin through a lack of intention, as many Scriptures prove. Scriptures show that “our salvation depends upon the sincerity and perfection of our endeavours to obtain it.” Law’s main contention is that we can please God only by intending and devoting all of life to God’s glory and honor.
