I See It Everywhere
We've been looking at vehicles to transport the Wilsons around the area and on vacation. Since one of the Wilsons has black fur and four legs, and since that family member weighs 155 lbs and stands 42" tall, most vehicles won't work for us. Couple that with Henley the Great Dane being a little gimpy in his old age, and it narrows the field even more.
Enter the Honda Element. It's styling is... unique. :) But as a dogmobile it is almost perfect. So we've been researching them, and you know what, I see them everywhere we go now.
Tonight, I was teaching through Romans and we came to Romans chapter 9. Many an argument has been begun in those verses as Calvinists and Arminians duke it out over predestination and election.
But you know what?
All I can see is God's love.
25 Concerning the Gentiles, God says in the prophecy of Hosea,
"Those who were not my people,
I will now call my people.
And I will love those
whom I did not love before."
"Once they were told,
`You are not my people.'
But now he will say,
`You are children of the living God.'
Romans 9:25-26 (NLT)
All the way down to the end.
"I am placing a stone in Jerusalem that causes people to stumble,
and a rock that makes them fall.
But anyone who believes in him
will not be disappointed. "
Romans 9:33 (NLT)
God is good, all the time - even in Romans 9.
Let's agree on that and argue about the rest some other time.
