Does God’s sovereignty in salvation offend you?

When you are offended by a difficult verse like Romans 11:32 — “For God has imprisoned all people in their own disobedience so he could have mercy on everyone” — stifle that impulse and meditate instead on its neighbor, v.33 — “Oh, what a wonderful God we have! How great are his riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his methods!”

Our feeble minds simply will not be able to harmonize everything that is true. Humility before God is far wiser than trying to interrogate the one who gives you life and breath.

The Almighty is an excellent debater.
