Gracious Gifts – Romans 8:32

Romans 8:32 – He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

Jesus once asked a group of people, “If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?” (Luke 11:11).  The Master’s point is simple.  Who would do ill to someone they cared for?  By extension, the Lord tells us that God, Who is perfectly good, knows far better what is for our good.

The Apostle Paul explained this same notion in the context of the sacrifice of Jesus.  If God the Father would not spare His only begotten Son on our behalf, then there is nothing He would not give us for our good.  Our part is to seek Him and say with the Psalmist,
“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him” (Psalm 62:5).
