What does God owe us?

Standard

A few weeks ago, I was reading Job (rhymes with globe, a book in the Bible) near the end when God finally spoke to him. The verse that’s captivated my mind since I read it was Job 41:11 “Who has first given to me, that I should repay him?
Whatever is under the whole heaven is mine.”

I think that for some reason we think God owes us something. We may think we’ve been good, or done something that we think He should bless us for. But according to this verse, God says we can’t do anything that he should repay us. He doesn’t owe us anything!

Our culture is so egotistic that we continue to live as though the world revolves around us. Its all about me, isn’t it? We are so great in our eyes. But the truth is, we are nothing compared to God. He created everything, from the unfathomable reaches of the universe to the innermost recesses of our hearts and minds. He is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent. The list gets long! But lastly, let me mention that God is love (1 John 4:8). Love so beyond our ability to understand that He would love us. And that’s where this verse takes me.

We should never stop thanking God for His love, mercy (not getting what we deserve) and grace (getting what we don’t deserve). We are loved, blessed, forgiven and fulfilled only because God chooses to condescend to us. I know it seems really amazing, but He does love us, and the cross is the supreme expression of His love. He died so we could be with Him forever.

Thanks God today for His love, mercy and grace.

One thought on “What does God owe us?

  1. The universe is like a shaken bottle of water. The water represents timespace, energy the Father, “the substance of things hoped for”- Heb11:1. The air represents probability, energy the Holy Spirit, “the evidence of things not seen”- Heb11:1.The bottle itself represents the limitation of impossibilities. The shaking is the one substance exerting its oneness in one direction stirring closed circuitry, represented by the bubbles, that there be something to move out of the way and fill in behind, that all circulating the same way repel, by the basis of Planck’s volume, “the stone which the builders rejected” – Mat21:42, energy the Son, administering orthogonality that not only pushes for confluence for undifferentiation but temporarily blocks the processes of undifferentiation. But, by the second law of thermodynamics undifferentiation is naturally inevitable, centripetal undifferentiating greater than centrifugal orthogonal blocking. Each bubble eventually ceases to exist having its original eternal nonexistence restored. What is it that God took away from us that He didn’t give us, therefore that He owes us back? NONEXISTENCE!
