2Cor 5:20 – “Now then, we are ambassadors of Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”
The humility of God is truly astounding. He’s sovereign. Completely sovereign. He is under no obligation whatsoever to let us have our way with anything in our lives. What God wants, God is completely able to get, and He could easily make anything happen that He wants to. And yet we see Him here, pleading, asking, imploring His own creation. He is so passionate about winning the hearts of His people in voluntary love that He pleads with those He has the right to command.
I think John Wesley summed it up incredibly well:
Did the judge ever beseech a condemned criminal to accept of pardon? Does the creditor ever beseech a ruined debtor to receive an acquittance in full? Yet our almighty Lord, and our eternal Judge, not only vouchsafes to offer these blessings, but invites us, entreats us, and, with the most tender importunity, solicits us, not to reject them.
His tenderness is truly amazing. How could we help but love Him back?
