Life Flows From God

Description

Redemption is not a strange work which God for a moment turned aside to do. Rather, it is His same work performed in a new field, the field of human catastrophe!

"God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." (Genesis 1:31)

Without doubt, we have suffered the loss of many spiritual treasures because we have let slip the simple truth that the miracle of the perpetuation of life is in God!

Be assured that God did not create life and toss it from Him like some petulant artist disappointed with his work. All life is in Him and out of Him, flowing from Him and returning to Him again, a moving indivisible sea of which He is the fountainhead.

That eternal life which was with the Father is now the possession of believing men and women, and that life is not God’s gift only -- but His very Self! The regeneration of a believing soul is but a recapitulation of all His work done from the moment of creation.

So, redemption is not a strange work which God for a moment turned aside to do. Rather, it is His same work performed in a new field, the field of human catastrophe!

Father, that Your gift of eternal life flows through us is a wondrous thought for those who know You. But for those who haven’t received You as Savior, the gift will turn into an eternal nightmare. Lord, mobilize Your Church to proclaim the gospel as never before.
