Daily Thought: An Act of Divine Grace
"God's covenants with man are always acts of divine grace. They stem from the fact that God is love, and it is the nature of this love to be ever active and outgoing toward its object. There is no obligation owed to sinful man to compel the Creator to continue to act toward him in such a manner as to promote his welfare. The covenants of God grow out of the nature of God, and not out of the nature of man." ~ Ketcherside, W. Carl, The Death of the Custodian (Kindle Locations 115-117), SCM e-Prints. Kindle Edition.
