God’s Raw Deal

February 23, 2010

As I continue to read “Grace Upon Grace” by John Kleinig, I keep finding great passages that need sharing.

This passage speaks of how God takes everything from us to gives us everything He wants to give us.  Thank God that He makes such a raw deal (for Him) to give us more than we can ever imagine.

God deals with us in a strange way as we travel on our course here on earth.  Little by little He strips us down until we are left with nothing except our bare, fragile human soul, a soul that relies on Him utterly for its existence.  Then He strips us of our soul in death.  He takes away everything that we have in order to give us everything that He has in store for us.  His purpose in this gradual demolition of us is to give Himself ever more fully to us and to bless us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ (Ephesians 1:3).  He brings us through the darkness of dying and death with Jesus to usher us completely  into the light of His radiant face.
