God’s Grace Resolves Spiritual Quandaries
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. (1 Peter 5:10 KJV)
God’s desire is that all mankind be eternally established in Him. He desires the best for all mankind but man must desire to have the best from God for himself. God never forces His love upon anyone. It is always a choice man makes to personally accept or reject His love.
The love of God comes to mankind through intense suffering.
The love of God had a cost to God and His Son.
A relationship with God could cost mankind everything; including family, jobs, earthly relationships, and personal possessions. Any loss man encounters actually brings him spiritual gain in his relationship with God.
There is a perpetually bright and illuminating side to God’s grace and love. The cost of loving Him brings mankind great and eternal blessings which cannot ever be taken from him or fade away.
