YOUR CONDESCENDING GENTLENESS HAS MADE ME GREAT.         PSALM 18 verse 35

GOD’S GOODNESS

In Christ Jesus, God stooped into the human race, the infinite God embraced in finite flesh. The Eternal One entered into time, the Creator of all things became subject to His own laws of creation. This is amazing! But it is True!

In order to rescue the human race from its depravity and ultimate destruction, He joined it.


OUR CONSEQUENT GREATNESS

Through Jesus Christ we can become great in PRIVILEGE, called ‘sons of God’ (Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not been made known. But we know when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3 verse 2),

great in PROMISES, (Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1 verse 4) and great in POSSIBILITIES, with potential to rise to great propensities for good.

What is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him? Psalm 8 verse 4, Why God should be mindful of such a minute creature as ‘man’ especially insubordinate and unruly ‘man’ is beyond human apprehension. The only adequate answer is that He loves us because He IS Love. He lowered Himself in order to lift us us up.

A young boy came to his Cherokee grandfather. "A fight is going on inside me," he explains to him. "It is like a fight between two wolves. One is angry, envious, greedy, arrogant, a liar, full of pride, everything evil.

The other is good – loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled.”

"Which wolf will win?" he asked his grandfather.

The old man smiled replying, "The one who wins will be the one you feed the most.”

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
