Overflow Thursday 11th Nov

Many of you will know, how deeply I appreciate the rich theology of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome. There are some of course who avoid Romans and it is possible that it was this book that Peter had in mind, when he commented that Some things in his (Paul’s) letters are hard to understand” (2 Peter 3:16). However, I am fully convinced that the more we understand about God’s means of grace to us, the more that our hearts should be moved, our spirit’s stirred and our feet stomp! Therefore, it is of little surprise when Paul, bang in the middle of his discussion about God’s goodness to Israel overflows in praise with the following words:

Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!

For who can know the Lord’s thoughts?
Who knows enough to give him advice?

And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back?

For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.

(Romans 11:33-36)

So then, here’s the question………What is your heart overflowing with today?
