Vacancy or How To Get the Best Room in the House

The giving up of God’s self in order not to give up on humanity…the arms of the crucified are open—a sign of a space in God’s self and an invitation for the enemy to come in.
Miroslav Volf

Our Saviour was brought into the world  to the sounds of animals. He was shut out of the world of people.

No room.

But, at His death, with His arms outstretched, He invited the whole world into Himself. He had plenty of room for all of His creation to live in.

Vacancy.

Whosoever will.

All are welcome to the table of Grace.

So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding.

Colossians 1:19 Message

Somebody or How To Cheer For the Other Guy

Everybody, even the worst stinker on earth, is somebody for whom Christ died.

Robert F. Capon,  Kingdom, Grace, Judgment

One of the best things about grace and the God who provides it is that I got in on the deal. One of the hardest things about grace and the God who provides it is who else gets in.

It’s selfish for me to accept and relish in God’s amazing grace, but have concerns about who else gets the same pleasure. The thought that I am being critical and judgemental of who God shares His grace with is no different than the attitude of the Pharisee’s of Jesus’ day.

The heart of God is to rejoice with excitement and joy when I hear of someone who I would deem as “unworthy” of God’s grace, receiving and believing! When I do this I am joining in the atmosphere of Heaven and actually answering Jesus’ prayer of Heaven on Earth!

Be like Jesus, love everyone.

Be like the servants in the parables, tell the undeserving.

Be like the Father, prepare rooms for all.

“We are saved by God from God through God to God for God. The idea of our salvation is the Father’s; the work of our salvation is the Son’s; the dispensing of our salvation is the Spirit’s. So that in all things God will get the glory.”

– Jared Wilson, Gospel Deeps: Reveling in the Excellencies of Jesus

It’s single-handedly God.

While I may not completely agree with the exact wording and thought process as Mr. Wilson, I do 100% agree that salvation is ALL God.
