Sparing Nothing

"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?"
Romans 8:32

If we are tempted to think God is withholding some good thing from us, all we need do is consider that He has already given us the most prized possession He has. His Son. And He did so when we were far from Him, living out of His will, without a thought for Him. Enemies of the cross of Christ. Out of His love, God has already met our greatest need -- the need for a Savior. It is only logical, then, that He will also given us all the lesser things we need. In the words of Ray Steadman, "If someone thinks enough of you to give you a costly, brilliant, beautiful, flawless diamond, do you think he will object when you ask him for the box that goes with it?"
