Still delighting in my "God Saves Sinners" commentary on the book of Isaiah by Ray Ortlund, Jr.
The most surprising thing in the world is that the God we wish existed is the only true God that actually is.
The idols of our imaginations seem more likely to us.
He is not limited by our limitations.
He is not bound by our bondage.
He is above and beyond and fully committed to being the glorious gracious, one and only, God.
His glory is to show grace in giving to those who don't deserve it, who haven't rightfully earned it.
His glory is to grant mercy to those who fully deserve destruction, who have rightfully earned a guilty verdict.
