Yesterday I wrote a post about Donald Miller’s opinion that God does not have a plan for our lives, unless he has made direct revelation in the form of a talking donkey or a miraculous pregancy.
Today, Tullian Tchividjian, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, FL made this observation:
The gospel jackhammers the ground we love to stand on: self-reliance! (Online Source)
Indeed this is the heart of the life of a person called by God, put more simply: a Christian. Ephesians 2:10 is clear that God does have a plan for our lives, and the consequence of Adam’s desire to rely on himself and not God is the curse that each of us had inherited.
Thanks be to God for his sovereign grace and boundless mercy! It is only by his power that we are saved to new life, and this new creation is done apart from us and for works according to God’s good pleasure.
