A faith that stands

2 Corinthians 2:1-5

Why good people need grace

And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?  And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

Mark 10:17‭-‬18 KJV

Election and inheritance 

The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.  Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord , and teachest him out of thy law;  That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.  For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

Psalms 94:11‭-‬14 KJV

Leaving judgement to God

O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.  Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.   Lord , how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?  How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?  They break in pieces thy people, O Lord , and afflict thine heritage.  They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.  Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

Psalms 94:1‭-‬7 KJV
