Crazy Love…


I have been studying in the book of Romans. It is intellectually demanding.  Maybe that’s the point. The more you discover about God and his extravagant generosity and love, the more you discover that you are just at the threshold of understanding…..that in fact, it is outside of your human ability to understand. It just is. And we are just grateful knowing that God in His extravagant love and through His continuous initiative sets things right for us…he “does” it all for us….we receive, we trust and we obey (and even that part God is doing and shaping!)

Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out. Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do? Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice? Everything comes from him; everything happens through him; Everything ends up in him, Always glory! Always praise! Yes. Yes. Yes. (Romans 11:33-36, The Message translation)
