God, the Creator and Lord of All, Vol. 2

Excerpt from God, the Creator and Lord of All, Vol. 2 And when God came to men in Christ it was not because men sought him, turning from their sin, but it was God in his free and sovereign grace coming to men in their sin to save them from 1t. And not only is this so, but men could not even have had any knowledge of God, unless God first by his own action had in some way revealed himself to them. This priority of divine grace is always recognized by the prophets, by the apostles and by Christ. It is the shepherd who is represented as going out on the mountains to seek the sheep, not the sheep that seeks the shepherd for it had wandered away. The prodigal, did nothing to awaken compassion in his father's heart. He simply cast himself on the fatherly love which had yearned for his return during all his course of folly and of sin. SO our Lord says: God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. John declares Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us. We love him because he first loved us. And Paul says God commendeth his own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. 1 No man by any action of his own can get the start Of God's love to him. God in his grace revealed in Christ is compared to the light of the sun, pouring itself into every opening, restrained only by opaque bodies which obstruct it, and most of all by the world itself when it rolls its bulk between us and the sun and shrouds us in night. Unless God were already graciously disposed, the sinner by his own action could no more make him gracious than he could kindle sunbeams in the sun.
