About Sovereign Love Series
There are two things we need to know and believe about God: His eternal power and His divine nature. Is God truly who He says He is: Sovereign Love?
Romans 1:20 ESV
For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
Two things we need to believe: God’s power and His character. On these two issues we stand or fall morally. We live or die spiritually. It is the most basic question of faith: Is God in absolute power and is He perfectly good?
Mental assent and heart faith are miles apart. I can ‘know’ both His power and His love as truths. But I must have a revelation of Who He is. It must be ‘revealed from heaven.’ To KNOW Him. That solves everything and He is willing to be known.
Romans 1 is the downward spiral of sin that is the result of not knowing and believing in the reality of Who He is.
