Can my zeal for God turn away His wrath?

This experiment of trying to save myself has been repeated and failed in every soul that has walked the earth from the beginning of time. It is impossible to please God through my hands or intentions.
Accepting the atonement of Christ’s sacrifice is the only way to escape the wrath of a Holy God.
**It’s His mercy that allows us to see the way. **It is His Grace that allows us to be accepted.
Poem: “Rock of Ages” by Augustus Toplady - 1776
