What if our response, “God isn’t like that” is based on what we don’t want Him to be?
“What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory” (Romans 9 v 22-23)
What if our understanding of what is fair pales into insignificance with the justice of God?
What if God chooses to save and chooses not to save?
What if God determines the outcome of every event?
What if God saves and in no way do we deserve it and what if God sentences because we all have deserved it?
What if God needs to display His anger and His goodness?
What if God creates, “a vase for holding flowers and another into a pot for cooking beans?” (Message)
If this is God, would we still want Him?
At some point we all limit God to the size we want Him to be.
