Praise God that whenever we come to Christ, we feel accepted, for He rejects none, not even the worst of the sinners.
"For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, " Romans 4:14 (NKJV)
God has not given us ever as per our dues, for in turn or all our sinfulness, He has given us pardon and shown mercy to us.
The world has some rules and criteria to fit in particular positions and the position of a righteous is also heavily guarded, however thank God for with Him all things are possible and the very unbiased nature of God opens a door of opportunity for us to become His children's by Faith.
Many of us would not have been in God unless God would have stooped down to pick us up.
Probably we do not cling to God for He has rewarded us for our virtuous deeds, rather we admire Him more for His mercy and compassion with which He looked down upon the dying sinner and lifted us up by His grace.
