The reason God saves sinful man

Albert Barnes writes: For the promotion of His own honour and glory; that it might be seen that He is powerful and merciful. This is constantly give as the reason why God saves men; why He forgives sin; why He redeems the soul; why He delivers from danger and death. …This is the highest reason which can be assigned for pardoning and saving sinners” (BN, Psalms, Vol.3, p.104)
