English Standard Version (ESV)
God keeps each and every one of his promises, but he doesn't keep them because we earn them--he keeps them because it is part of who God is, and because it is one of the many ways he pours out his extravagant grace. It's a free gift--you haven't earned the right to eternal life. You don't deserve it -- God gives it, and he has been giving this gift freely for centuries.
God gives life to the dead. He creates by his very word. We cannot fathom how great our God is, and we cannot wrap our minds around how he works, but we can give thanks from the bottom of our hearts that God loves us so completely, so freely, and so wonderfully.
