God Freely Giving, Man Humbly Receiving

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?…What do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you glory as if you had not received it? (Romans 8:32 and 1 Corinthians 4:7)

The Lord rescues and transforms lives by His grace. This plan of God is established upon Jesus being given as a sacrifice for our sins: “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all.” This gift of God’s Son assures us that God will also give us with Christ everything we need. “How shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” God’s giving is to be coupled with man’s receiving. As God is freely giving to man, He wants man to be humbly receiving from Him.
