This morning, rather than simply commenting upon a few words of Scripture, I want to encourage you to allow Scripture to speak for itself. Furthermore and most importantly, I want to encourage you to allow Scripture to speak to your own heart.
It appears that when writing his letter to the Romans, the Apostle Paul is so thrilled and so overwhelmed by the grace of God to his own people, Israel that he ‘bursts forth’ into praise. In Chapter 11 (vs 33-36), Paul says:
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom andknowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counsellor?”
“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
I encourage you then. Don’t simply read these words once, but spend time to meditate upon them deeply. The purpose? In order that we, like Paul, would discover something more of the grace of God towards us!
Every blessing, Gareth
