    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

God’s Providential Love

D. A. Carson

D.A. Carson:

God’s providential love over the entire universe: Not only did God make the universe and call it “very good” (Gen. 1:31), but even now in its disordered and rebellious state, Jesus teaches us that God “causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matt. 4:45). That this is an act of love on God’s part is shown by what Jesus says next: “If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?” (Matt. 5:46). In other words, our responsibility to love our enemies is grounded in the fact that God providentially loves the just and the unjust. (Love in Hard Places)
