God’s Good News

Paul, Christ Jesus’ slave, a chosen apostle, appointed to God’s good news (Romans 1:1, BSV).

Paul proclaimed the Gospel of God, i.e., “God’s Good News.” It was a Good News that came from God. It was a Good News with the sovereign God of the universe in it.

It was not the Bad News of Religion – one of condemnation and shame, one that professes a “loving” god whose hands are tied and will have to torment most of his creatures endlessly.

Instead it was truly “Good News,” and that from a Good God of Love, concerning the Son of His Love, our Lord Jesus Christ.

God’s Son IS the Good News of God. His Good News is entirely Christ centered; man has absolutely no part to play in it. It allows for no rebellion, and it leaves no one behind.

Paul was “appointed to God’s Good News.”

Don’t Quarrel with the Inmates

We know too much about things in this world to lean much on man. … Every single item of history today is certainly in accord with God’s intention, even though it seems that almost all of it is contrary to His will. Only if that is true can we have universal reconciliation. God can save all mankind eventually only if He keeps the reins in His hand.

All will not simply be saved, but reconciled, glorifying God. All this is fulfilling God’s intention. … So let us give thanks for it, no matter how bad it seems to be. When we realize this, then we can live in this insane asylum, and we will not quarrel with the inmates. … We acknowledge that all is out of Him, as well as through Him and, consequently will be for Him in the great consummation.
