Thought of the Day August 3, 2018 Who but God.

By 10:51 AM

Who but God could generation after generation warn a people of destruction; plead for them to circumcise their hearts, to turn from a lip service relationship to a heartfelt commitment, chastise the people in exile for 70 years and then in triumph lead them back to the promised Land?

Who but a good God could give hope of a new Messianic Age, a Savior who would establish a lasting kingdom to which all nations would share in?

Who but a loving God would forgive seventy times seven; would be merciful to servants who owed him a huge sum, who would welcome the prodical son, would forgive the sins of the prostitutes and tax collectors, who would come not for the righteous but for sinners, who would rejoice over one sinner who repented than ninety-nine who did not, who would go after the lost sheep, who would heal the blind, preach good news to the poor, free prisoners, raise the dead to life?

Who but a good, loving, provident God would use bread and wine to become the sign of his own flesh and blood to be shared and eaten in anticipation of the full banquet to come in glory?

Who but a good God could promise and fulfill the promise of eternal life, where he dwells with his people and they with him, where he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain, for the former world has passed away? Rev 21:4
