Bethany Bullet - August 19, 2014

St. Paul has defined the Good News for us.  He has described Good News bringers for us too.  Previous Bethany Bullets have covered these things thoroughly.  In Romans 11, St. Paul discloses to us the key to believing and clinging to Good News while living in a world that is so often filled with news that is not good.  You don’t need this Bethany Bullet to highlight news that isn’t good.  Pick up the paper, turn on the radio, and watch TV there is plenty to be found.

When bad news abounds many are prone to wonder what kind of God, God is.  In our text Paul makes it clear that God is neither capricious vs. 33b nor foolish 33a.  God is neither incompetent vs. 34 nor malevolent vs. 35.  His good and gracious will, His good and gracious activity, and His good and gracious glory is portrayed in the doxology of chapter 11:  From Him (will), Through Him (activity), and To Him (glory) are all things.
